Fingerless Mitts Pattern - Bay of Biscay 3.

The pattern begins here: Part 1 and 2


Work three rounds as established knitting the 5 sts that were cast on for the thumb opening. AT THE SAME TIME move marker 1 to right by one st and marker 2 to left by one st on the first round.

Next rnd: Work in pattern to marker 1, SM1, ssk, k3, k2tog, SM2, k to BOR. 50(54, 58) sts.

Work three rounds in pattern.

Next rnd: Work in pattern to marker 1, RM1, ssk, k1, k2tog, RM2, k to BOR.  48(52, 56) sts.   
Work as established until Rnds 1 – 4 of EMC have been repeated two more times (or to desired height).

Cut CC.

Knit one round in MC. Work 10 rounds (or to desired height) in (k1, p1) ribbing.

Bind off using Lori’s Twisty Bind Off method or bind off in rib.   Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Thumb (both hands)

Place 15(17, 19) sts from st holder onto a needle. Attach MC at right edge of the thumb opening and place BOR marker.

Setup Rnd: K15(17, 19), pick up and knit 2 sts in the gap, 5 sts from cast-on edge, 2 sts in the gap on other edge.  24(26, 28) sts for the thumb.

Rnds 1 - 2: (K1, p1) x 12(13, 14).

Rnd 3: (K1, p1) x 8(9, 10), ssk, k1, p1, k1, k2tog, p1.  22(24, 26) sts.

Rnds 4 - 5: (K1, p1) x 8(9, 10), k2, p1, k2, p1.

Rnd 6: (K1, p1) x 8(9, 10), ssk, p1, k2tog, p1.  20(22, 24) sts.

Rnd 7: (K1, p1) x 10(11, 12).  Repeat Rnd 7 to desired thumb length.

Bind off the same way as mitts.  Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Soak the mitts in wool wash detergent, rinse, wrap in a towel, and squeeze out the excess water. Lay on a flat surface or mitt blockers to dry.

Jogless stripes.
Photo: Robin Seaton

Part 1 of the pattern is HERE.


Make two, one Right, one Left. Pay attention on rounds worked differently for right and left hand, marked as RH or LH, if not marked then work the same way for both hands. 
Using preferred method for small circumference and MC, cast on 48(52, 56) sts. Distribute sts across needles and join for working in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches. Attach a marker to note the BOR. 

Rnds 1 – 12, MC: (K1, p1) x 24(26, 28). 48(52, 56) sts. 

Attach CC. 

RH, Rnds 13 - 14, CC: K7, (p1, k3) x 4, p1, k24(28, 32). 

LH, Rnds 13 - 14, CC: K24(28, 32), (p1, k3) x 4, p1, k7. 

Work the EMC Pattern using the Chart or Written Pattern on the top of the hand maintaining established St st on remaining sts as follows:  

RH, Rnd 15, MC: K7, EMC x 4, p1, k24(28,32). 

LH, Rnd 15, MC: K24(28, 32), EMC x 4, p1, k7. 
Remember to change colour at every 2nd BOR through EMC section, and to use the jogless technique. 

Eyelet Mock Cable Rib 

Rnd 1, MC: P1, k3. (4 sts) 
Rnd 2, MC: P1, sl1 pw, k1, yo, k1, psso.  
Rnd 3, CC: P1, sl1, k1, sl1.  
Rnd 4, CC: P1, k3. 

AT THE SAME TIME, work the gusset between sts markers as follows: 

RH, Rnd 16, MC: K7, EMC x 4, p1, k7, PM1, m1r, k1, m1l, PM2, k16(20, 24). 50(54, 58) sts. 

LH, Rnd 16, MC: K16(20, 24), PM1, m1r, k1, m1l, PM2, k7, EMC x 4, p1, k7. 50(54, 58) sts. 

Increase one st on right side of the gusset after marker 1 and one st on left side of the gusset before marker 2 every fourth round (Rnd 2 of EMC) and work sts between the markers in St st until there are 15(17, 19) sts between markers.  62(68, 74) sts. 

Work three more rounds in pattern without increases. On the next round place 15(17, 19) gusset stitches between the markers 1 & 2 on holder, cast on 5 sts.  52(56, 60) sts.

Fingerless Mitts Pattern - Bay of Biscay 1.

Crossing the Bay of Biscay by ferry takes a long time, of course, that translates as a knitting time for a knitter. I had a sock project with me but finished them faster than I thought I would. I had just some leftover yarns in my knitting bag and no internet connection. I had to improvise with the yarn I had and a simple stitch pattern. I made a pair of fingerless mitts on the left. Later I decided to enhance the Eyelet Mock Cable Rib pattern with slipped stitches to add the impression of ripple waves on the sea and made another pair of mitts. Over the week I'll share the pattern here in my blog so you can make a pair or two as well!

The mitts are worked in the round. The gusset and ribbed pattern on the top of the hand ensures a better fit. Separate instructions are given for the right hand, left hand and thumbs. Directions for three sizes are given. Familiarize yourself with a jogless stripes technique for uniform stripes, avoiding a little jog in the colour.

A blog isn't the best solution for publishing a pattern, I'm struggling with formatting. 
The pattern will be published in Ravelry later, as the downloadable pdf.

Stay tuned!

Circumference of the mitten (at the widest part of the hand):
S: unstretched 16 cm / 6¼’’ stretches to 18 cm / 7’’

Sõrmitud kindad ehk Biskaia Laht 1.

Suvi on muude tegemiste hulgas ka reisimise aeg, kuid kudujal on ikka vardad näpuvahel. Pikkadel auto-, bussi-, lennu- või praamireisidel saab ju kududa! Väike kudum ja lihtne muster kuluvad marjaks ära. Mul oli reisikudumiseks sokid käsil, kuid juhtus, et sokid said valmis enne, kui reis läbi. Olima parajasti keset Biskaia lahte, kudumiskotis ainult sokilõnga jäägid ja ei mingit võimalust mustreid netist otsida. Nii sündisid need vasakul olevad rohekad kindad sellest, mis kotis ja peas oli. Hiljem muutsin mustrit veidi ilmekamaks ja otsustasin jagada teiega!

Mustris on antud juhised kolmes suuruses, eraldi parem ja vasak käsi ning pöial. Kasuks tuleb oskus kududa triipe nii, et "jõnksu" pole näha. 

Käe ümbermõõt sõrmenukkide kohal:
S: venitamata 16 cm, venib kuni 18 cm
M: venitamata 17.5 cm, venib kuni 20 cm
L: venitamata 19 cm, venib kuni 22 cm
Pikkus 18 cm (muudetav)
15 silmust x 22 rida = 5 x 5 cm parempidises koes, viimistletud

Sokilõng / fingering / 4 ply, 100 g = 400 m;

Umbkaudsed kogused:
Põhivärv 30 - 35 g = 120 – 140 m
Kontrastne värv 13 - 15 g = 52 – 60 m

2.5 mm või suurus, millega saavutad vajaliku koetiheduse

Silmustemärkijad (3 - 6)
Silmustehoidja või abilõng

Sissejuhatus tehtud, jätkan varsti!

New pattern: Let's Twist Again! Uus muster!

Last December I designed the Let's Twist Again mitts pattern. I loved these tiny cables/twisted stitches so much, couldn't get them out of my head. The pattern looks great on socks too, isn't it?
Summer is on its way and maybe you don't knit socks anymore but I do, all year round! Let's Twist Again socks pattern was released last week. Both patterns are available in my Ravelry store. Want both? There is an offer available for you: buy one get another for half price.
I'm working on a new sock pattern at the moment. Should I release it in June or wait till September? Can't decide... Before that, I made a pair of mitts. The pattern is on the tech editors table. I might publish it in my blog. Would you like to knit along? We might start next week. 

Kes veel suvel sokke koob? Mina koon aastaringselt! Detsembris avaldatud vikeldatud sõrmitute muster sai nüüd ka sokkidele. Tore reljeefne muster, kas pole? Sokid on kootud alustades varbast, kannakiiluga ja tugevdatud kannaga. Veidi jämedamast lõngast, sport weight, vardad 2,75 mm. 
Mõlemad mustrid saadaval Ravelrys.
Momendil on varrastel järgmised sokid. Ühed sõrmitud said paberile, plaan on need avaldada blogis osade kaupa. Kas soovid kududa koos? Alustame järgmisel nädalal?

What's On My Needles? Mis on varrastel?

Bouquet Fingerless Mitts

I've been knitting small items over the last couple of weeks. They are so quick to make, posting about them takes a lot more effort! 
Bouquet mitts for charity are done. Next, I finished a pair of socks, wrote the pattern and getting it ready for publishing. I finished knitting socks when travelling. I can't sit without knitting but didn't have the next project ready, so I had to improvise with leftover yarn and a simple stitch pattern and another pair of mitts were born! I liked that simple design but it needed some refinements. That's what I'm working on right now, just haven't got any progress photos. I was thinking of releasing a pattern for the mitts on the last photo for free in my blog. What do you think? Is it a good idea? 

Let's Twist Again Socks

Viimaste nädalate jooksul olen kudunud hulga väiksemaid esemeid. Nende kudumine võtab vähem aega, kui neist postitamine!
Lillekimbu-mustriga sõrmitud Mustrimaailma heategevuseks on valmis. Peale seda lõpetasin sokid ja panin mustri kirja. Muster vajab veel veidi toimetamist, enne kui avaldatud saab. 
Sokikudumise lõpetasin praamireisil. Mul polnud järgmist projekti ette valmistatud, seega pidin improviseerima sellega, mis kudumiskotis oli. Lõngajääkidest sündisid alumisel pildil olevad sõrmitud. Praegu on käsil selle mustri kohendamine. Plaan on muster avaldada blogis tasuta. Mis te arvate sellest? Kas oleks huvi kududa?
