greenhouse knits #3
This is the third pattern from the greenhouse knits e-book. Don’t worry. # 2 hasn’t been forgotten, it will be released later this month.
The e-book will consist of at least 8 patterns, (probably 9) that will be released one after another during spring months with the last pattern in June. Two different hats, a pair of socks, long fingerless mitts, a cardigan, a tunic, a shawl and/or scarf and a pattern for small individual leaves to use as decoration or for knitwear embellishments.
Greenhouse knits is already available at a discounted pre-release price of 15 Euros. The price will go up with every released pattern until all patterns have been released. Than it will be at its full price of 22 euros.
Greenhouse knits #3: The mitts are worked from the top down to the fingers with delicate leaves twining around the forearm. The leaves are worked in twisted stitches (no cabling). These are very long mitts but can be made shorter by starting at a later round. The stitch pattern is charted and fully written out.
