We have enjoyed seeing people's Joy mitts on Ravelry and Instagram and although the kits are nearly sold out now, it is a pattern that can be done in many different colours, depending on what flag/colour scheme you want to use.

Since we published the original 3 colourways, people have reached out to us and asked for specific Finull PT2 suggestions for other pride flags. We decided to make up additional charts with the colours we thought would work.

Receiving them might be a welcome acknowledgement of someone's identity (do be sensitive about outing someone at a family gathering though!), or perhaps you know someone in a position like healthcare or teaching where wearing them will be a subtle way to signal that everyone is welcome.

You will need the original pdf to make these versions - just use one of these charts for the double knitting section, instead of the charts in the original.

For the hand charts, the 3 colour versions (genderqueer, pansexual) should have 4 rounds of each colour and the 4 colour versions (non-binary, asexual) should have 3 rounds of each colour. The colours should follow the same order as in the flag.

Chart for the genderqueer flag with suggested colours, 494 green, 400 white, 4088 light purple

Genderqueer flag - 494 green, 400 white, 4088 light purple

Chart for the asexual flag with suggested colours, 442 dark purple, 400 white, 414 grey, 436 black 

Asexual flag - 442 dark purple, 400 white, 414 grey, 436 black

Chart for non-binary flag, 436 black, 442 dark purple, 400 white, 4075 yellow

Non-binary flag, 436 black, 442 dark purple, 400 white, 4075 yellow

Chart for the pansexual flag, 472 light blue, 4075 yellow, 4886 pink 

Pansexual flag - 472 light blue, 4075 yellow, 4886 pink

If you do use any of these alternatives, (or the original versions) and share them on instagram, please tag them #joymitts so we can admire your work.

An alternating cable cast on is a useful, stretchy cast on for ribbing that’s less fussy to work than a tubular cast on. It’s worked like a regular cable cast on, but instead of casting on each stitch knitwise stitches are alternately cast on knitwise and purlwise.

This tutorial includes both step by step photos and videos so you can use whichever suits you better.

This post was originally in our newsletter last week and since then several subscribers have reached out with incredible kindness to say that they'll miss the club but want to keep supporting us. We appreciate that so much, and, although we obviously need purchases to keep the business going there are lots of other ways that you can support us. I've added a few notes at the end on ways that you can support our business and my design work without spending money. All of them apply to other small yarn businesses, and many of them to small businesses of all kinds.
