PATTERN DETAILS

To celebrate Mitten Day, this pattern is discounted to $4 through October 14, 2015. Do you want the look of chevrons, but you're not ready for, say, a yellow shirt with a big black zigzag? Quiver Mitts offer a subtle chevron texture in a simple broken rib pattern. No cables or twisted stitchesjust knits and purls. I've designed these mitts with options. Decide whether you'd like fingerless mitts, full-length mittens, or convertible fingerless mitts. You can even choose from three types of afterthought thumbs"fingerless," closed, or convertible. Knit from a smooth, worsted weight wool, these mitts work up quickly when you need a gift by the end of the week or if chilly weather sneaks up on you. Pattern includes charts, written directions, and links to techniques used in this pattern. Samples used approximately 120 yds of Cascade 220 for fingerless mitts; 150 yds for full/convertible mitts. Estimated yardage reflects a 10-15% cushion. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round picking up stitches buttonholes (for convertible thumbs)--instructions included in pattern reading charts is helpful, but instructions are written out as well GAUGE 5.5 sts and 7 rounds = 1" (2.5 cm) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Women's medium Relaxed circumference: 6.5" (16.5 cm) Stretches to fit up to about 8" (20.5 cm) hand circumference Fingerless: 8.75" (22.5 cm) long from cuff to tip Full Mittens and Convertible Mitts: 10.75" (27.5 cm) long from cuff to tip Schematic included in pattern SUGGESTED YARN 175 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Cascade Yarns Cascade 220 COLORWAY Summer Sky 7815

I live in Washington, IL, with my husband and 8-year-old son. I am a lover of all things crafty and am known for giving handmade gifts. Learning from my mother that all crafts deserve to be explored, I took up knitting in June 2009 and jumped in with both feet. In 2011, I became known as Bronwyn the Brave among friends of the Knitting Pipeline Podcast after triumphantly tackling a knitting blunder. The moniker was secured after facing major surgery in 2012. In the fall of 2013, I took on another challenge as a designer and technical editor of knitting patterns. I believe that every crafter has a bit of bravery inside. How brave are you?
