This is the one of three extra accessory patterns for year 5 of my 7 Small Shawls eBook series.

These mitts are based on a stitch pattern from Cecelia Campochiaro’s lovely book “Sequence Knitting.” Sized amply enough to fit over your watch and bracelet stacks, they are easily resized by adding stitches to the simple pattern. The openwork around the bottom of the cuff adds a pretty accent. You’ll want to wear these every day like I do!

About the series:

Note knitCompanion set-ups can be purchased (in the knitCompanion store) for those who like to use knitCompanion, but do not wish to set up their own charts.

Welcome to year five of my subscription series! The idea for my first eBook subscription (Year One: The Pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I reached my goal that year, and the next year I was back for more challenge. After that, I realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions. I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! 7 is one of my favorite numbers, and so I am still doing 7 small (and not so small) shawls with 3 (my other favorite number!) accessories thrown in.

Lately, I’ve become more than a little obsessed with asymmetry. Asymmetry in color, shape, and stitch pattern…the more I have sketched and dreamed, the more possibilities have come to me. I ended up with a sheaf of designs, and I’m so excited to share them with you!!!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending in September, 2016. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern. All patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and maybe even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Are you ready? Happy knitting!
