It has been a while since my last magazine publication, but here is one of them. I have another one coming later ithis fall.
I would like to introduce Kelsey for Knitscene Fall 2012 issue. Kelsey is an opera gloves design that can be customized into a pair of fingerless armwarmers. I would like to provide flexibility to the knitters; hence, the pattern provide 2 versions of Kelsey. If you would like to shorten or lengthen the gloves/mitts, simple subtract/add a repeat of the cable pattern.
I love cables in the winter. I like the structure of the cable and it always give me the cozy feeling. For kelsey, I have chosen to use a large interwined cable panel and pair it with simple ribbing. The ribbing provide the stretch and make the gloves/mitts to stay on the arms and hands better.
Following is some details of Kelsey:
Size 7½” hand circumference, 16″ long (gloves), 13¼” long (mitts)
