If you enjoy knitting mittens, like stranded colorwork and a fun touch of geometric designs, then this mitten collection is for you.
Maria’s collection of mitten designs is a wonderful introduction to stranded colorwork. Each design uses approximately 220 yards of aran weight yarn in two colors and a size US 6 (4.0 mm) 32″ circular needle for knitting in the round. Included in this eBook is a wonderful 22 page beautifully photographed step-by-step tutorial for knitting basics, various stitch techniques, knitting with two strands of yarn and blocking. Maria has also included a page on chart reading, how to fix mistakes and more. Each pattern offers written instructions but the designs themselves are charted. For those of you who enjoy visual techniques, Maria has also included photographed and written instructions for joining the flap, this is a plus!
The Chevron Mitts and the Ven Mittens are perfect for those of you who need the convenience of using a smart phone or other electronic devices. Both of these designs feature a convenient flap that opens easily at the top, but still keeps your hands toasty warm.
You can find more of Maria’s designs online at Raverly. You can find Maria online at her blog, Elegant Economy, FaceBook, Twitter and Pinterest. You can also stay informed by joining her Ravelry Group.
