Snooks- fingerless mitts or fliptop mitts PDF Pattern

Snooks- fingerless mitts or fliptop mitts PDF Pattern


I wanted to make some gloves from Olive Snooks yarn (hand dyed by Skein Queen) ever since I saw it in someone else’s stash, I had been itching to knit something with it and in my head I could see what it was. The colourway is from a series of yarns created by Skeinqueen, inspired by Pushing Daisies TV series. The fairisle pattern is almost a circle that shifts along on each repeat. The pattern is knit in the contrast colour yarn and the thumb has a different pattern. In my head I was thinking of Olive Snook, circles, strange quirks and sunny days

The pattern includes instructions on making mittens, flip top mittens or handwarmers plus knit support.
