Graine Fingerless Mitts pattern

You might have already caught this on Instagram, but I’m so happy to share that my Graine Fingerless Mitts knitting pattern is finally here! It’s actually been out for a couple of months now (ahem), but I’ve just realised that I never hit publish on the blog post. Better late than never, right?

Graine Fingerless Mitts pattern by behindtheivy

It feels like a world away in this current summer heatwave, but these mitts were inspired by the snowy walks that Graeme and I took last winter.

When your breath fogs up the cold air and your feet are crunching over the frosty grass, these woolly fingerless mitts are perfect for keeping your fingers toasty and warm.

About the pattern

They’re a classic design; long cuffs to stop the cold north wind from sneaking up your sleeves, and seed stitch on the back of the hand for some gorgeous, simple texture. I just love the way that seed stitch looks! Don’t you?

The cuffs around the fingers are extra long so you can pull them down when the cold starts to bite at your fingertips, or fold the ribbing back if you need some extra movement. They’re pretty uncomplicated, but techniques such as the 2×2 tubular bind off keep things interesting for seasoned knitters, or for beginners wanting to stretch their knitterly wings and try something new.

A flash of contrasting colour around the edges adds a bit of visual interest, and is perfect for using up scraps of yarn! Or stick with a single colour if you prefer a more monochrome look.

The Graine fingerless mitts are quick to work up, and the straightforward construction makes them an ideal portable project. They’re perfect if you want to get a head start on your autumn/winter knitting!

You can find the Graine Fingerless Mitts pattern on Ravelry and on LoveKnitting. Happy knitting!

The Spirits and Sprites set uses The Yarn Collective Bloomsbury DK, which I'm now pretty obsessed with.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
The hat would be a great intro to stranded knitting if you fancy giving it a go!

  • What are your tips for kick starting your knitting mojo?
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
Lay them on me, because mine has taken a hike!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I was rummaging around in one of my baskets the other day and found the swatches I made for my Tidal socks. The sample size is too small for my huge feet so I think I might make another pair just for me. Hopefully it'll help to kick start my knitting again! Anyone interested in a KAL?

  • I'm all about lazy weekends at the moment. Pottering about, watering the plants, endless cups of tea while I knit and watch black and white films. Today I made it to lunchtime before I even thought about getting out of my PJs πŸ™ˆ
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
In knitting news, the colourwork project is off the needles and blocking cozily in front of the fire, and I'm back onto my lovely, mossy Tender jumper πŸ’š

  • Happy Friday folks! These weeks are flying by, but each one is bringing a little more sunshine and a little more spring 🌞🌷
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
My Tender Jumper is still bimbling along, but I spent a few moments at lunchtime, sitting in a sunny corner and playing with some beautiful new yarn. As I looked up I noticed that the yarn matches my plant pots - it's always good to have a colour scheme πŸ˜‚

  • Lemon and sugar πŸ‹ or Nutella 🍫 on your pancakes? It's a close call, but I think lemon and sugar might be my fave!
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
I've been trying to ease off the knitting lately after I started to get some RSI in my hand and wrists. After a week without my needles (it was HARD! πŸ™ˆ) I couldn't resist casting on something new with this beautiful, soft sage green. It's the Tender jumper by @bmandarines and those little chevrons are so addictive! I keep wanting to work just one more row...

  • An #accidentallywesanderson moment after the sun melted away the fog.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
When I was small I wanted to live in a lighthouse and sleep in bunk beds like they did in the Portland Bill stories. Where did you dream of living when you were a kid?
