I’m always blown away by the patterns one can find for free via Ravelry and Knitting Pattern Central. In the last week or so, a whole trio of sweet gloves (fingerless and fingered) has popped up, leaving me itching to sift through my stash of single skeins and to cast on for some early-autumn knitting.
Over at illumiknit designs, there’s With a Twist of Mustard—
What I like about these beauties is the cable running down the center of the palm. No matter which way you look at them, there’s detail that will inspire you to admire the work of your own hands.
The final pair in this trio is Zigzag, available as a free Ravelry download. These have a bit of color work in neutral hues along the wrists/forearms that gives a folk-art feel while simultaneously managing to appear sophisticated (go look at them, you’ll see what I mean).
With a Touch of Mustard and Zigzag use fingering weight yarn; Climbing Leaves uses sport weight. No doubt you’ve got the perfect fiber for at least one of them languishing in your stash. Go ahead and cast on—you know you want to.
