Your Cart is Empty

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.
