#knitsonikmittsalong PDF pattern and moodboard (Magnolia tree)
This pattern + moodboard are designed to aid your participation in the KNITSONIK spring 2016 #knitsonikmittsalong. The pattern features the same written instructions as the Fingerless Mitts pattern in the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook plus blank charts and a moodboard to aid your DIY designs! These items have been re-styled to the Magnolias/springtime blossom trees theme of the KNITSONIK spring 2016 #knitsonikmittsalong. Please note, only some of the pages are shown here in the photos. The pattern includes written directions and blank charts for you to fill with your own designs as you mittsonik!
The #knitsonikmittsalong runs from 1st March - 31st May 2016. In the mittsalong you knit a pair of fingerless mitts as a swatch, creating and designing your own charts as you go. The inspiration source is a beautiful Magnolia tree, photos of which are included in this PDF pattern and moodboard. By knitting together and experimenting with a similar palette, we can collectively explore the interactions and possibilities of the same limited palette!
This PDF is designed to be used in conjunction with 8 shades of Jamieson & Smith Shetland 2-ply Jumper Weight Yarn that can be purchased here from my friends at Jamieson & Smith or here from my friends at Purlescence.
