Did someone say they needed another scrappy pattern? I do! I have been knitting these mitts for a while now and so many of you asked about a pattern that I thought I would write it down for you lovely folks!
This is a relaxed knit and it gives you a fun way to use up and show off those beloved yarn ends that you have been hoarding for so long. Just the right project for those evenings when you just need to unwind and do some knitflixing, without paying too much attention to the pattern 😛
It is a great pattern for beginners who want to make fingerless mittens for the first (or 100th) time and it takes you through all the steps to create a well fitting piece of art made entirely from the scraps you love.
A big thank you goes out to my wonderful test knitters, als always: Binle, SiNessi, Owl-knitting and to Suzieqtee for proof reading the English version. I love you, you wonderful ladies!
I know have been terribly quiet these past months, with work and the kids being… well, boys (read: Noise with dirt on them), so I am determined to get my knitting mojo back and I have a few pattern ideas lined up.
I was busy creating a second Etsy shop for my physical items in New Zealand and left my old Etsy shop for my knitting patterns only, as Etsy wouldn’t let me change my country without losing all my reviews (hooray for non-globalisation). This is not ideal, but it has been mis-calculating shipping costs (taking Sweden as point of origin) and apparently this was the only way to go about it. Very customer friendly… NOT.
So if you would like to get anything handknit from my shop, look here at MumpitzDesignNZ or here in my webshop where I occasionally run sales. For the first week you will get the new pattern only here at 50% discount.
