Camissonia Mittens

My new “Camissonia Mittens“, sized to fit the average adult female hand.  Knit in standard Fair Isle knitting technique, then (optionally) embroidered, using Dale Garn Alpakka throughout:

The knitting kit is available through my on-line yarn shop, Kidsknits.com.  It includes five different-colored balls of Dale Garn Alpakka (the default kit gets you the colors shown, but feel free to request your five favorite shades of Alpakka) and your choice of the printed pattern (yep, there are plenty of pages to this baby!) or an emailed PDF.

Mittens knit in Magic Loop technique

I used the “Magic Loop” technique for mine.

And, of course, the downloadable PDF is for sale through Ravelry, too.
