Beautiful Projects – Inglis Mitts

by Sarah Stanfield March 02, 2017

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.

Pay what you can pattern pricing
Pay what you can pattern pricing

by Ysolda Teague May 10, 2019 0 Comments

Pricing patterns has always been one of the hardest parts of designing and I’ve often felt like the “standard” price of knitting patterns is both lower than other similar products (eg. indie sewing patterns) and doesn’t really reflect the amount of work that goes into them. At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
