Back to Basic – convertable Mittens August 28, 2011

Convertable MittensIf you are a knitter and loves to knit kidswear, then you will certainly like Petite Purls. Petite Purls is similar to Knitty but specialize in Kids knitwear. Petite Purls publishes 4 issues a year and fills the issue with trendy and beautiful knitting patterns for kids. Petite Purls also publishes a list of patterns what they call ‘Back to Basics’; the idea of ‘Back to Basics’ is to provide pattern that not only will be great beginner patterns to work from, but also great patterns for those of knitter who want to explore their creative side: a good starting point for colorwork, a decorative stitch pattern, or a border motif. The possibilities are endless.

Stripy versionThis month, Petite Purls, has added my convertable mittens pattern to their ‘Back to Basics’ issue. The design for this basic convertable flap mittens pattern creates a blank canvas for knitters to create their own version of flap mittens. This basic pattern can be easily adopted to create a pair of striped or Fair Isle mittens. Check out my version of the covertable mittens! For those of you would love to have the pattern for the stripe version, check out the upcoming issue of Interweave Gifts which is available very soon!

The pattern for the Basic convertable Mittens is free and available HERE!
