Free Pattern: Camilla Mittens

As I said the other day, your patience is appreciated. Now it's all about to pay off. My newest free mitten pattern, Camilla has been released.Sporting a fine stylized floral motif, she's a classic beauty. Interested? Pick her up on Ravelry here. If you'd prefer a direct link to her .pdf then please, right this way. She's free, so you don't need to mess around with my Etsy shop (unless you'd really like to.) Your choice.

Yes, instructions are included for producing fingerless mittens. Yes, this is the perfect first-colourwork pattern for those of you new to the field. And yes, I used Sunday Knits' Eden and Nirvana 3 ply yarns to knit her -- the colourways are Beet and Sand, respectively. Believe me when I say that there are few things more lovely than colourwork mittens knit in a cashmere/merino blend.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have socks to knit.

I am working hard on knitting more for myself, and I am also trying to expand my colorwork experience, so these are being added to the list! Thanks for sharing it for free.

Really like the mittens, but do wonder how you came to name them after me..? I must make a pair then i suppose ;)

Hi, i'm asking here and on ravelry, because I REALLY want to do these mittens. The instructions call for fingering, but the ravelry page for the yarn you used says it's sport weight. I can cast on tonight if it's fingering, sport will take more wrangling. Thank you for the free pattern!
