Beautiful Projects – Inglis Mitts

As you’ll have seen from Ysolda’s latest blog post, we are knee deep in preparations for the Edinburgh Yarn Festival. It doesn’t seem like a year from the last extravaganza, but it is – and so there’s been time for lots of you to knit up a pair of Inglis mitts, the pattern Ysolda designed for Wool Tribe, the companion publication for EYF. This week I had a look at some of our favourite pairs, or sets of pairs…as you’ll see!

A lovely pair in the original yarn, our own Blend no.1, knitted by elys717

Weaver85 knitted up her pair in Quince and Co Chickadee, a lovely substitute that shows off those cables beautifully. Photos were taken by peterc.

Another pair in Blend no.1, this time by saralu. I love how her photo highlights that lovely soft yarn halo! 

SilverSpringKnit has had busy needles! She’s knit three pairs, telling me that ‘the grey are the Mitts for a Colorado winter, the blue are the Mitts for a D.C. winter, and the brown are the Mitts for a New York winter. But the pairs went to me, my daughter, and my daughter in law.’

Seems like the Inglis mitts are becoming a favourite pattern of some knitters, this pair were knit by jolakey who’s now made them four times!

And finally, a crisp, natural pair knit by knotforknothing as a store sample for Fancy Tiger Crafts in Denver. She’s made a second pair of her own already and has some nice yarn suggestions for future pairs on her project page. Photo was taken by Kaylee Lockhart.
