Stripy Mitts



Hurrah, the day has finally arrived!

The Stripy Mitts are now here and apparently no more imaginative name than that comes with them.  Still, it does what it says on the tin I suppose.  They are mitts and they are stripy, you simply can't dispute it.

I've rather excelled myself if I do say so.  I have the pattern ready and waiting for you to download and get stuck straight into.  But, in case you're not so confident with your crochet, or following written patterns easily then you might be interested to know that there's a tutorial as well.  I know, amazing!

But, before that joyous moment arrives I thought I would share a little bit about these mitts as they haven't had their moment of blog time up to now.



I kind of made them to go with my Riot scarf.  Why I took it into my head to make them with a totally different yarn and crochet them instead of knit them, I can't explain.  I did know I wanted them to be buttony though.  In my head, I had an image of a Victorian ladies boot, with buttons all up the side.  You know the ones that needed a special button hook to do all teeny buttons up with?

The best bit was playing with the buttons at the end though.  As you may imagine, it took me a little while to arrange and rearrange them into a pleasingly effortless random configuration.  While smiling at the irony of the amount of work it takes to achieve the 'effortless' effect.

I'm very happy with these little beauties and I've been wearing them a lot.  Even in the colder weather, I wear them over the top of a pair of normal gloves to jazz them up and that pleases me a great deal.

But, it'd be cruel to deny you any longer, so I won't dilly dally further.

I thought I'd give you a few options to choose from....


I want to download the written pattern (PDF file) right now 
(You can download it at any time from the Cherry Heart Boutique.)

Take me to the photo tutorial please
(The link can be found on the TUTORIALS page.)


Enjoy!
