Muddy River Mitts by Selana

I recently test  knitted the Muddy River Mitts pattern by Selana on Ravelry.com.     I used Austermann Merino Silk and I love them.    The pattern is very well written with a cheat sheet to mark your thumb gusset increases next to the corresponding cable round.  Making it really easy to keep track.

They’d make an ideal gift and all of Selana’s patterns are 40% off until 10th May 2015.

Adult Marbled Hoodie pattern, due soon

Our baby marbled hoodie pattern has proved so popular and we were being asked for Adult sizes, we will be releasing the children’s sizes very soon so the whole family could have one.      

The hood features the textured pattern and a ribbed band for a good fit.    We used James Brett Marble for our hoodie but you could use any chunky yarn which gets you the same tension (gauge), the sample shown used a heavy aran Patons Jet.

This is the adult pattern and is sized from a 32 to 60 inch chest.    The cardigan features two optional pockets to the front, ribbed bands, buttons and an attractive textured pattern on the yoke area.     Worked flat using two needles and one circular needle for the hood/button bands, this is an easy knit and suitable for a first garment.
