As my dayjob doesn’t leave me enough time to come up with something new and a EU law concerning VAT tax coming into effect in 2015 makes selling digital goods rather complicated, I chose to close my business & put everything I designed so far online for free.
Have fun with it. BUT: There will be no email support when you have problems/questions, as I won’t be around anymore.
This pair of mittens is perfect to get a little taste of doubleknitting as this is a relatively small project. Featuring detailed instructions on how to cast on and work in the doubleknitting technique it’s a great first doubleknitting project.
Thanks to the doubleknitting technique you will end up with a fully reversible pair of mittens that are warmer than most knitted mittens thanks to the double layer construction. Apart from that doubleknitting is the perfect answer to problems with floats (fair isle), as the yarn will only ever be carried a maximum of two stitches. This results in a more stretchy fabric! The mittens will hug your hands plus fit a wide range of hand sizes without being too tight or loose.
