K.I.S.S. Mitts

Keep It Stocking Stitch

I am planning a collection of very plain knitted items. The KISS collection will feature items that use stocking stitch only, except where necessary, e.g. ribbing at cuffs to prevent rolling etc.

The first pattern in the collection will be these mittens.
K.I.S.S. Mitts
The mitts are worked top-down so that you can weigh your yarn and use exactly half. They’re long, so you decide when to stop. The thumb is worked with short rows to give a pleasing shape.

KISS patterns will be plain, to show off your art and self-striping yarns to best advantage, and so that you can add the finishing touches you want to them. KISS knits may be plain, but they won’t be boring. Each will feature an interesting technique, such as the mitts’ short-row thumb, but there won’t be any lace, cabling or colour work. And because the main stitch pattern is stocking stitch, they’re gonna be fast, fast, fast.

The KISS collection will also include a hat, jumper, cardigan and another accessory.

The KISS mitts use S Twist wool, the only yarn to be completely processed in Ireland. Found some in This Is Knit last week and had to have it for this pattern. Will write a review shortly!

Rosabella Mitts

Peekaboo!

My Rosabella Mitts pattern is finally available to download!
They feature roses and rosebuds in stranded colourwork. The flowers are mirrored, hand to hand, and the cuffs are done with corrugated ribbing. I used Rowan Fine Tweed to make them and it’s a lovely yarn. Great texture from a slightly thick-and-thin spin, and of course, those gorgeous tweed flecks.

for £3!
