Through the Woods Fingerless Mitts…

By January 3, 2014 2 Comments

One of the very FIRST patterns that I published after learning how to knit was my Through the Woods Hooded Neck Warmer. It’s been a very popular pattern over the past several years and seems to be timeless in it’s practicality as well as its beauty.

I made quite a few of these hoods this season for customers and one of them requested a pair of matching fingerless gloves. It was the perfect opportunity to make up a new pattern!

I created a pair for my customer and also knit another pair based on my notes from the first pair. All seems to be well with my notes. But you know how it goes….you take certain things for granted when you write up a pattern. Or at least, I tend to.

It’s a pretty basic cable but the cable twist just before the ribbing at the top of the mitts is performed differently. I’ve explained the different techniques in the pattern. I’m also working on a series of Tutorial videos to accompany many of the latest patterns that I’ve published this Winter.

It’s unbelievable to me how much I’ve actually accomplished this season! Many, many patterns written up, photographed and published. And they’ve all been so well-received on Ravelry. Along with many Knitwear orders made for the Christmas rush. It was a fabulous end to my year and it felt great to get so much done.

I hope that you enjoy this pattern and use it in your gifting this year!  🙂

    I have a question for you, can you use the same yarn for this as the “through the woods hooded neck warmer”? The patterns seem to call for different weight yarn and I want to make sure I have matching colors and the easiest way would be to use the same yarn but I’m worried how to resolve the yarn weight differences. Also, love your patterns! Hopefully I’ll have enough “free time” to have this set ready by next winter…

Please, let me know what you think...
