I am so glad to be finished with this redesign. And so glad to introduce my new Tartan & Tweed Mitts! One size adjustable with gauge to fit Men’s Large down to Kid Size. Here they are modeled by Jeff in Men’s Large…
… you can’t easily distinguish the colors, there’s grey, blue, and green. I very intentionally knit with colors of weathered Fraser tartan (um…they are Outlander mitts!), these in Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light (sport/DK) which this wool-fearing man seems to be quite okay with.
I’ve been feverishly knitting these mitts in several popular yarns, more Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light with a slightly tighter gauge to fit me, women’s small to medium, in lovely greys…
I think the different tones of greys best shows the different contrasts in value, without the color distraction. Here is examples of the medium stripe (top), lightest stripe (middle) , and darkest stripe (bottom).
But then when the colors play in, it’s magic ! These in Malabrigo Arroyo…
Some really interesting variations of chart are now included …
The ” itty bitty mitties ” are miniature Tartan & Tweeds in sock yarn knit up in tiny US 1 needles, made for Nora last Christmas, who is only three. Oh! I almost forgot to mention, I have condensed the original pattern , that was in Shetland fingering yarns and 4 sizes, and included it at the end of the ‘new’ pattern. So that should be fun, and you should have a full plate of knitting options !
So folks, I’m kicking off this redesign with a promotion….
Edit in February 5 : PROMOTION ENDED.
WOW!! This is huge! ….LOVE the colors you used.
Hi ! Now you can see I haven’t been just sitting around in the last few weeks ! 🙂

Thanks Liz ! 🙂 xx
Jen, these are wonderful! I love the color choices and the changes you made.
Thank you Carol ! And you know , I figure the Cascade Sport Superwash you sent might have been a real instigator of the change 🙂 Thanks so much for that ! xoxoxo
