‘Una Cosettina’ has had a bit of an overhaul in recent winter weeks. I have knit up several more variations on the original design from nearly a year ago. Now pattern has options to work lace up the back of the hand, (I so wanted to do this , and now it is done and I’m satisfied!) . You can create a full lace gauntlet , or a sporty shorty little wisp of a mitt, or anything in between. Options to omit i-cord cast-on & bind-off and/or eyelet round, and skip straight to the lacework. To me a bounty of choices makes a good pattern and as much fun to wear as it is to knit as it is to write!
But frankly folks, this pattern is all about using that one-of-a-kind skein or ball you have. Perfect for those lovely singles of your own spindle-spun yarn or that lovely skein of luxury yarn you couldn’t resist buying from that great yarn shop you just visited. Maybe you discovered a ball of vintage yarn in your grandmother’s attic which narrowly escaped a pair of argyle socks in the 50’s, or that novelty yarn you bought from the 13th-Century wool mill while visiting the town of Biella in Italy.
Una Cosettina meets One-Skein-Project-itis and makes a stunningly beautiful friendship.
This pattern can be found on Yarnings HERE, and detailed on Ravelry HERE.
Your “further adventures” with this pattern are pretty darn cute!
Hi Carol ! Thank you 🙂 I am updating all the ‘loose ends’ in my first patterns, making them how I would make them if I designed them today. Then its off to new design adventures. xx
These are fabulous – I love the extended lacey version but as I’m in Sydney right now I won’t be knitting them for a while.
Thank you Sally ! Well, Sydney will get chilly in just a couple of months maybe? 🙂 xx
