(Finally!) Prada Mitts & a SALE!

Hey guys!  So sorry for the long disappearance there!   Busy busy summer :P  But here I am, back & alive, with some news for y’all!

First off, I finally got off my butt and formatted my Prada Mitts pattern and put it up for sale! Like all my for-sale patterns, it is available as a PDF download for only $2.00.


These are a long, elegant pair of cabled fingerless mitts inspired by the socks in Prada’s Fall Ready-to-Wear 2010 collection. These mitts feature a contrast color cable on a 3×1 rib background.  These mitts use a bit of trickery so you can both knit them in the round without having to weave in a million little ends.

If you want to knit this pattern, you’ll need:
~ The pattern, of course :)
~ Needles: US 6, 7, 8, 9/4, 4.5, 5, 5.5 mm DPNs or circulars (2 circs or magic loop)
Don’t be intimidated by the number of needles! The needles are used to change gauge to adjust the fit, but the ribbing alone will make this pattern fit a range of sizes if worked with just one or two needle sizes.
~ Yarn: [MC] Cascade 220 Wool [100% Peruvian Highland Wool; 220yds/201m per 100g skein]; color #8400: Charcoal Grey; 1 skein (more like 3/4 skein)
[CC] Patons Classic Wool [100% Pure New Wool; 223/205m per 100g skein]; color #00226: Black; 1 skein (more like 1/4 skein)
~ Notions: Tapestry needle; Stitch markers
~ Gauge: 19sts/28rows = 4”
~ Finished Measurements: Arm Cuff: 8”/20cm
Wrist: 6.5”/16.5cm
Length: 13.5”/34cm

And for the second piece of news, I’m having a sale in my Ravelry Store. From now until my birthday, October 11 (I’m gonna be 22!!!), I’m offering a buy 2, get 1 free promotion! You don’t need to enter any codes or anything – just buy 2 patterns, then when you go to buy a 3rd, it’ll be free! And I do believe that if you have bought patterns from me in the past, they’ll count towards the tally…
