Cupcake mitten pattern is live!

Finally, finally, I come bearing the Cupcake Mittens pattern! Grab it here on Ravelry (and yes, in the Etsy shop too -- soon.)Cute mittens featuring everyone’s favourite treat – cupcakes! Sweet little cakes (in several different flavours) march across both the back-of-hand and the palm of these charming mittens. A striped thumb adds contrast and interest.I should also mention that (as usual,) instructions are provided for making fingerless Cupcake Mittens as well!

Das infos:

Size: Women’s Medium (or any hand that is 8” in circumference.)

Gauge: 9 stitches = 1 inch (2.5 cm) in Stockinette st.

Yarn: One ball of Knit Picks’ Palette (231yd / 50g) in Bluebell (Main Colour -- MC,) and partial skeins of Knit Picks Palette in the following Contrast Colours: Custard (Contrast Colour A– CCA,) White (Contrast Colour B – CCB,) Rouge (Contrast Colour D – CCD,) Doe (Contrast Colour E – CCE,) Bark (Contrast Colour F – CCF,) Pimento (Contrast Colour G – CCG,) Cotton Candy (Contrast Colour H – CCH) and Garnet Heather Doe (Contrast Colour I – CCI.) Alternately, any other fingering yarn in these colours or colours of your choice may be used. A 15” piece of waste yarn of the same weight in a contrasting colour to hold the thumb stitches is also required.

Needles: One set of five (5) double pointed needles in US 1 (2.25 mm) or size necessary to obtain gauge.

Notions: A stitch marker to mark beginning of round (optional,) and a sewing needle to weave in ends.

Skills Needed: Increasing and decreasing, knitting in the round, stranded knitting, twisted stitches, and chart reading.

Now I'm off to go chart the NEXT two mitten patterns. Stay tuned!
