We had a request from Twist Collective for some of our Loopy Ewe Solid Series yarn awhile back, so we shipped it off, anxious to see what they were going to make with it. The pattern came out in their special 5th Anniversary Issue, and we couldn’t be more please! The Perfect Storm mittens, designed by Kimberly Voisin, look like they would be perfectly fun to make! It takes just one skein each of Lake, Ivory and Cherry, and the mittens can be knit on double points or circulars. And it seems like a great way to bring a little bit of summer beach into your cold and snowy winter months. Pop over to Twist Collective if you’d like to purchase the pattern, and then pop over to The Loopy Ewe for the yarn! (Photos by Carrie Bostick Hoge and Kate Gilbert, used with permission.)
Need some other fun suggestions for color work patterns? I came across these this week and promptly purchased the Sheep Mittens. Looks like the yarn she used is a fingering weight, so The Loopy Ewe Solid Series would also work well for them. Or Cascade Superwash Sport for sport weight mittens. And doesn’t she have lots of cute designs? Tempting.
