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.

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.
