Heart of the Lotus Yarn Pack in Gradient Stripes, pattern not included, ready to ship
These captivating mitts are the perfect combination of gradient stripes and beautiful detailing. Lynne Vogel's pattern is easy to follow and includes instructions for how to pick up and create the gorgeous "petals" at the hand of the mitts.
From the designer: "Heart of the Lotus includes three versions, Ornate, Delicate and Sleek. Knit it in either fingering and sport weight yarn: instructions are included for both. Sleek and Delicate versions are reasonably quick to knit. Pattern sizes are formfitting. For looser armwarmers, especially if you like to scrunch or wear over a long-sleeve T, knit a larger size than usual."
Vogel recommends using a large sock set to knit any size (it is cleverly sized for S, M, and L hand sizes) in the Delicate or Sleek versions. Knitters who attempt the Ornate version will either need more yarn or would need to substantially shorten the mitts. If you are adventurous enough to make these modifications, have at it, but we recommend following her recommendations so as not to run short on yarn.
Knitter RadicalWeft on Ravelry knit up this gorgeous Delicate pair in the photo using a large matching sock set in the colorway Over the Rainbow Gradient Stripes. We've included other Gradient Stripes colorways here as options, but you can order any Gradient or Gradient Stripes matching sock set for a delicious pair of mitts. Just look here for options and make sure you purchase a large set. If you know you want shorter Sleek mitts, you may purchase a medium matching sock set and modify them at your own discretion!
This yarn is ready to ship from our studio to your favorite knitting chair.
