Free Pattern Friday: Winter Hand Warmers!

Welcome to the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend. It's free pattern friday and for the first time this year I am thinking about mittens because my hands are getting chilly when I walk outside. So I found a few different mittens you can use with a bunch of different weights of yarn. 

This first pair of crochet "Falling Leaves Mittens" by Stacey Williams is a great use of sport weight wools with a contrasting cuff and beautiful lattice on top of either ombre or solid colored yarn. I would recommend using the Yoth Big Sister Gradient kit we got in this past May's Classic box.

The second crochet piece is the "Sleigh Ride Mittens" by Jennifer Dickerson. The bulky weight yarn in this mitten means it is going to be so warm! You will never have to worry about your fingers getting cold when you pack the next snow ball. (Winter is coming. Crochet Faster!) I would recommend using The Farmhouse Fibers or the Mano's Del Uruguay Clasica from our overstock store. 


The first of our knit patterns are the "Och Blommor Mittens" by Kat Lewinski. These scandinavian inspired  mittens are so pretty. These mittens are the kind of mittens you keep on a string through the sleeves of your jacket so you don't loose them. I know I would be heartbroken if I lost one.


The last pattern for today is "Mittens to Order" by Diane Mulholland and they went immediately into my que cause I have to make these. They would match my jacket so perfectly. And if you use 2 solid colored sock yarns from our sock box, you have a perfect pair. For both of the knit mittens I recommend the Dragonfly Fibers Pixie or the Rogue Sock by Narwhal Needlework
