Zoo Adventure Mitts
This Choose Your Own Adventure inspired pattern collection offers lots of stitch pattern options (31!), which can be used with any of the items, tons of different ways to knit your piece - you can make hundreds of totally different objects between all the different choices!
The fingerless mitts can be made as wrist-warmers (no holes for thumbs), with plain thumbholes, or with shaped thumbs. The mitts are worked flat, joined either by sewing the seam, grafting, 3-needle bind-off, or buttons; if you add thumbs, those are worked in the round.
This was a knit-a-long in summer 2015; check out the leethal knitters! group for knit-a-long posts, to see the adventurous items that everyone made!
The ebook includes normal pages plus DIY foldable, bindable, covered print book pages, to make your complete pattern collection into a book like this.
