These mitts match my Shallows Cowl/Scarf. From now until December 15, 2012 I am offering them at a special discounted price of $3.00. The price will increase to $5.00 after December 15.
They are knit flat and seamed. Techniques required include stockinette stitch, garter stitch, yarnovers, ssk, k2tog, placing beads, and seaming. The stitch pattern is given in written form and in a chart.
Blocked dimensions are 7 inches/17.5 cm wide by 7.25 inches/18 cm long (before seaming, measured at widest point)
You'll need about 135 yards of fingering weight yarn, US2 and US4 knitting needles, and 16 #6 seed beads. The pattern includes instructions for placing beads. However, the beads may be omitted: knit the stitch instead of placing a bead on it.
The Shallows Mitts and Cowl are available as a set. See Shallows Set in my pattern listings.
