I am a long-time knitter and designer, living in Los Angeles with my husband and son. The patterns you see here are part of my independent pattern line, Mind of Winter Designs. You can find other Mind of Winter patterns at Mind of Winter on Ravelry. Recently, I have also had several designs featured in Twist Collective, including Evendim and Red Oak. In addition to publishing in Twist, I have published designs in Knitty, in Classic Elite pamphlets and in several books, including Knitting in the Sun, Boho Baby, and Greetings from Knit Café.View all patterns by designer (29) »
The Adiri Mittens pattern is a two-for-one: an over-mitten with the Adiri stitch pattern, and a plain under-mitten in a contrasting color. I have to thank Kristi of Shalimar Yarns for goading me into the under-mittens. These make for an incredibly warm combination, and can stand on their own as a quick, fun introduction to mittens generally. The over-mitten is worked in my beloved Shalimar Haven yarn, and the under-mitten is worked in everyone's beloved Shalimar Breathless DK.
Both mittens are worked in the round from the bottom up. They are not attached and can be made separately. The Outer Mitten features a lace panel on the top portion of the hand. The Inner Mitten is worked in Stockinette stitch.
The pattern is suitable for advanced beginner lace knitters. Please see specific required skills. Instructions are both written and charted. The pattern has been professionally tech edited to reduce the possibility for error, but if you have questions or believe that you have found an error, please contact me.
Outer Mittens: 18 sts, 28 rnds equal 4" / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch after blocking.
Inner Mittens: 22 sts, 29 rnds equal 4" / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch after blocking.
