PepperMitts

Dear Knitters,

I’m thrilled to share my latest pattern with you: PepperMitts.

peppermitt-2-682x1024

PepperMitts are knit in worsted weight yarn on size 5 and 6 needles, so they work up very quickly. The colorwork repeat over four stitches and four rows is easy to memorize.

The pattern is written for three sizes with the following circumference at widest part of hand (above thumb gusset) for each size:
Small: 6 3/4 in.
Medium: 7 1/4 in.
Large: 8 in.

Length measures about 8 1/4 in. for Small and Medium, and about 9 in. for Large.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions, and both are used together.

I’m so looking forward to wearing mine during the Christmas season. I am also going to make a pair in a wintry, pale blue and white. I can’t wait until the yarn arrives!

Here you can see the mitt made with all the ribbed sections in red:

Thank you to Main Street Designs in Jackson, California, for letting me use their beautiful shop to stage the mitts. It’s a lovely shop and definitely worth a stop if you are ever in the California Gold Country!

Many thanks also to amazing tech editor Tabitha (Tabitha’s Heart ), who always makes my patterns better!

I also am very grateful for test knitters who are willing to work through my patterns to find errors and to find places where I can clarify my instructions. I’m sending out a huge thank you to my friends Meg, Jen and Heather who tested this pattern – they did a bang-up job! Jen came up with the pattern name, too, and I think it’s perfect!!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and spend a few minutes with me. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
