The queen of procrastinating (yes, I am talking about myself here) finally got her act together. Last month I worked on a pattern that was released years ago, as a club pattern available to members only, and ever since I thought that I would like to make it available for everyone to enjoy. Hm, it sure took its sweet time... Truth be told, there were some issues that needed to be solved and I didn't like the original layout one bit, so there was some work involved, including tech edting and a round of test knitting. But with all that done, the pattern was finally added to my store: Multidirectional Mittens.
It really is a pattern to show off the beauty of variegated yarn because the changes in knitting direction create stripes that change directions too: vertical, horizontal, angular.
The individual parts of the mittens are worked using different techniques and are worked in different directions: The cuff is worked flat and knit sideways; lower hand and upper hand are worked in the round, part of the thumb gusset section is worked flat in short-rows.
The pattern includes three sizes, women's S, M and L.
The pattern for Multidirectional Mittens is available from my Ravelry pattern store, here, and thanks to all the positive feedback and suggestions, I've already worked on a fingerless version. That pattern though, needs another round of test knitting, but I hope it won't take as long as rereleasing this one...
