Free Pattern - Merletto Mitts!

At long last I can now finally present (in proper fashion) my latest design.

I give you the Merletto mitts!

Nov07 398


Stats:
Pattern: Merletto Mitts
Designer: Me!
Yarn: Any sock yarn (I used less than one ball of Knit Picks Gloss)
Needles: US 2/2.75mm

These fingerless mitts were initially a gift for my friend Jolene last Christmas. I made up the pattern by combining a simple cable with some lace details. Put it all together and the Merletto Mitts were born.

This was such a fun pattern to design! I also had lots of great help too! I have to thank Sarah, and Stacey for test knitting and Jolene for helping edit the pattern.

Don't forgot - if you're going to MD Sheep and Wool this year, there will be tons of gorgeous hand painted and kettle dyed yarn for you to make this pattern at the Cloverhill booth!

Enjoy!

As usual, you ROCK.
I LOVE this pattern.

You know, I should cast on a pair for myself, I gifted away the two pairs I test knit before...

Stacey said...

Agree 1000% with Ms. Sarah - you rock!!!! I have been wearing these a lot recently, and am taking them with me this weekend to the trial!

THANK YOU so much for sharing this pattern with us!!! I've been waiting patiently for it to become available. ;-) I know what I'm casting on this afternoon even though I already have way too many projects going. But what the heck, it's my birthday and I'll knit if I want to! LOL

These are lovely, and I'm greatly enjoying knitting it up. A couple of questions:

- is there a reason for the Sl1, K1, psso rather than an SSK decrease?

- do you cast any stitches on after putting 20 stitches on the scrap yarn for the thumb, or just work the 56 stitches remaining around for the rest of the hand?

And some more detailed feedback:
I love the way the lace and cables interact, the rhythm of this knitting keeps you going and going and going :-) it's a very effective pattern without being overly complex -- all the variations I can think for it (I suffer badly from no-two-the-same syndrome, grin!) are more complex.

I don't have a Ravelry account - I tried downloading the file from the other link. I have to wait 20 seconds, then the box says "Download" - but when I try to download, I get a "cannot load" or "cannot download" error page.

Bronte said...

These are beautiful! But I can't get the pattern download to work.
Is there a way that you can just post the pattern?

LivM said...

Thanks for the lovely pattern. I have just made two pair!

Carla in MT said...

This is a wonderful pattern - I have made 2 already!! Thank you for sharing it. I just put photos of one of them on my Ravelry : cjpiano. I'll get pics of the other set this weekend. Thanks again.
