Lucy has filmed her fifth free video in her New Year's mitten adventure series on her
"Usually I wait until a project is well underway before filming techniques and sharing them with you but, this time, I'm inviting you to join me on an as yet undeveloped project.
I want to write a straightforward double-knit mitten pattern using my lovely new Blue Faced Leicester sport weight yarns. After that, nothing is certain.
Mittens are an excellent application for double knitting. As I record this journey I'll try to explain my reasons for choosing various techniques. There may be mistakes, recalculations and re-dos! Please subscribe to my YouTube Channel to be notified of developments as they unfold,"
Lucy's River Ripple Socks pattern is half-price this week!
Have you ever fallen for a skein of hand-painted yarn? How best should you exploit every colour?
These socks are begun with a soft faced cuff and a decorative i-cord inspired detail. This leads into the leg pattern with cabled elongated stitches to highlight the colours in the yarn. A garter stitch short row heel is used and then the leg stitch pattern is reversed with a condensed stitch pattern for the sole, adding strength, warmth and maintaining equal row height with the instep pattern. Finished with a cozy garter stitch toe to coordinate with the heel.
The River Ripple Socks pattern is half-price ($4.75)
