Pattern: Agnes Mitts

 

It’s that time again – design time. I’ve had fun this year exploring a bunch of different techniques and patterns that have influenced the direction of my own design for this season of fingerless gloves.

I started sketching some patterns with both colorwork and texture in mind and decided to explore both techniques using on design. Hopefully, this will be the first in a small series of patterns on the theme. This first pattern explores stripes and ribs. I love how different the design looks based on technique.

Both patterns are bundled together so you can explore both!

The colorwork version utilizes stranded knitting to create a graphic pattern in stockinette. Please be sure to loosely strand the colors in back to create a flat fabric and avoid bumpy sections between colors.

The texture version uses knit and purl stitches to create texture, perfect for showing off solid and semi-solid color yarn.
