Gidday everyone ! Freshly baked: inspired by the “Wheel of Fortune” I made on the previous model, here is the pattern of the “Mini-Wheels of Fortune” mittens is ready and available for sale on Craftsy. You’ll need around 30 gr of 4 different colors (8 ply) and a 3.5mm crochet.
Bobbles are fun when they are worked with different colors. I felt inspired by the beautiful wool bought from Cruella”s to make a first pair of multicoloured mittens, orange bobbles on green strips, and some red to make it even more shiny
Those gloves are made in a mix of alpaca and merino wool: shades of beige as background, and pink colors for the bobbles
And finally, a mix of pure wool in shades of blue and light grey
I love Granny Squares, we can just use them for any purpose. They make beautiful blankets and throws, but they also make fantastic gloves or mittens. Here are the last ones. The Purple/Mustard Wheel of Fortune one is made of Merino. The other pair is a mix of wool, mohair and acrylic. I welcome all your comments !
Vintage inspiration these days with a multicolour hat in pure virgin wool (different shades of brown and yellow), with some cuddly curly wool, embellished with some lace, a knitted green square and beautiful vintage red button. The gloves are warm and confortable, they perfectly fit the shape of the hand.
I had that hank of craft wool of a beautiful green which I did not too much know how to use.
The solution came from a granny square once again. A bit of pink in the center to form a flower, and juggle with the nuances of green all around to give the feeling of a garden.
A butterfly and a ladybird come to decorate the mittens and because we want to make it chic, there is a flake of 12 Swarovski crystal beads in the center of both flower. We should not hesitate to indulge ourselves sometimes!
It started with a beautiful symetric granny square. A bit of beige and light brown, with a hint of rust and dark green for the contrast. The wrist is formed by crossed triple crochet, that I shall have to explain to you soon. The light brown thread is the Zhivago from Patons, It is a pleasure to work it, it is very soft and slightly satiny.
