Cast On: Faded Fingerless Mitts

I may have fade on the brain lately. I finished my Free Your Fade last week and I was over the moon. But I still had a decent chunk of the grey and raspberry left and I decided to make a matching accessory to go with the shawl.

I cast on some DK weight fingerless mitts. Our house has had too many germs for relying on my brain to make a pattern so I found a great free pattern on Ravelry. I’m using Fingerless Mitts by Cheryl Goyer as a base and then just adding an Andrea Mowry fade.

I just flew by the seat of my pants with the grey yarn and JUST managed to eek out the perfect fade sequence in the first mitt right as I ran out of grey yarn. This one is done except for the afterthought thumb. Now I need to cross my fingers and start the second mitt to see if I can recreate this yarn usage and size…fingers crossed!?

Happy Knitting!!

FO Friday: Gradient Mitts

I had some surprise kid free time this week and I managed to finish the Gradient Mitts!


Pattern: Gradient Mitts by Krista McCurdy

Yarn: Prime Fingering from One Twisted Tree. I used the beachy mini skein set and then some miscellaneous black yarn to finish

Needles: US 3s

Mods: Rav noted here

I was SUPER excited how these worked up. The yarn held double makes them super warm. They aren’t as long as I normally make fingerless mitts but I kinda like that. My son has already stolen them as play things!

Bonus to this is that I used most of the kit from stash, these counted towards the December minis interception for the Pigskin Party KAL, and I have new warm mitts!

Happy Knitting!!
