#knitsonikmittsalong PDF pattern (Shetland Croft House Museum)
This pattern + moodboard are designed to aid your participation in the KNITSONIK Shetland Wool Week 2016 #knitsonikmittsalong. The pattern features the same written instructions as the Fingerless Mitts pattern in the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook plus blank charts and to aid your DIY designs! These items have been re-styled to the Shetland Croft House Museum theme of the KNITSONIK Shetland Wool Week 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 Shetland Wool Week #knitsonikmittsalong runs from 24th September - 24th October 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 the Shetland Croft House Museum, photos of which are included in this PDF pattern. 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 as a kit here. Full kits of yarn + a printed pattern can be purchased from Purlescence here where you can also buy an individual printed paper pattern if you prefer that to this digital download.
