Ribbling Mitts

Don’t know how I missed it, but I have recently discovered Ribblr, a crochet, knitting, sewing and Tunisian crochet crafting platform with a new form of interactive e-pattern that translates, highlights, and lets you mark off your progress. I’ve already transferred two of my patterns into e-patterns on Ribblr, which you can find in my Ribblr shop.

In my exploring around this new platform, I came across a very cool pair of gloves made in Tunisian crochet. I had never seen Tunisian crochet used for anything other than a blanket, so I immediately set about finding a yarn to create the gloves.

This pattern is Perfect Fingerless Gloves by Hayley Joanne Robinson. It’s currently free at the time of this posting.

A pair of blue Tunisian crocheted gloves lay on a laptop keyboard. One is dark blue with a light blue thumb and the other is light blue with a dark blue thumb.

I had two colors of Knit Picks Comfy yarn that complemented each other, but neither were enough to make a full pair. So I decided instead to make each glove in one of the colors and add the other color in for the thumb so it’s a coordinating pair.

The only modifications I made were the color change in the thumbs and slip stitching the seams instead of sewing them.

I’d say this pattern is great if you are looking to learn more Tunisian crochet. It was super easy to follow and perfect for a beginner.

I know a lot of us are not using Ravelry right now, so if you are looking for a new way to buy or sell patterns, go check out Ribblr. Their pattern editor is super easy to use, so it might even be an easier way to start designing and selling patterns if you have been intimidated by figuring out how to write patterns.

Mitts Week 4: Peacock

For week 4 of the mitts project, I found some bright Red Heart yarn I had left over from some other project I don’t exactly remember. I thought it would go good with some small cables on each side of the back of the hand. The kind of get lost in the colors, but it makes it look rather nice.

I managed to knit most of these while babysitting and watching a classic movie marathon on Netflix. Which was good, because I started them at the end of the week instead of the beginning.

As always, you can find these and others on my Etsy Shop.

Mitts Week 3: Sunny Hearts

Well, I kept my promise to myself to make a pair of mitts each week leading up to Christmas from Halloween (mostly). I just got lazy on writing about them. As I tend to do. So now I am going to catch myself up. This is my third week’s design:

I’ve called it the “Heart in Hand” mitt because there is a heart on each side of each hand. I wanted something simple but also decorative, so I just made up a heart pattern of purl stitches as I worked the hand.

As always, these are now available on my Etsy Shop.
