CRAFT WORK KNIT: Go Dutch!
It starts with a whisper...
Behold, the first pattern in Craft Work Knit, the Go Dutch! mittens I started so long ago, made even more relevant by the Netherlands' performance in the 2010 World Cup! I just happened to be watching this match live in a pub in Rotterdam this summer. GO DUTCH!
These mittens are knit in the round, using stranded knitting that, for a few rows, involves three colors. I like the graphic effect of the traditional braid at the cuffs and the more modern arrow pattern (which I chose to indicate speed and momentum!).
Where can I get this book and pattern? you may ask. My website will be live in the next week and books will be available for order! Ebooks and individual patterns will be available for download soon after. For now, just... get excited. I have 11 projects to show you and will post one every day or two until it's all out there!
