Introducing Caffeine Fingerless Mitts...
Fingerless mitts are my winter-hand-accessory-of-choice. On milder winter days I wear them on their own and on chillier days I wear them over a plain pair of gloves in a complementary colour (which is usually black for me). My fingerless mitten wardrobe needed some updating...and here we are!
Caffeine Fingerless Mitts is the 3rd pattern to be released in the Caffeine Collection . This is one of my absolute favourite stitch patterns to knit! It’s mostly knits and purls for 4 rows followed by 2 rows of pattern work (to keep it interesting) and the result is a beautiful, squishy fabric that looks great on any accessory!
Caffeine Mitts start with a tubular cast on (or your cast on of choice) a 1x1 rib stitch on the cuff that continues through the thumb gusset and thumb. The Caffeine stitch pattern is worked on the front and back of the hand and the mitt ends with an icord bind off.
Links to video tutorials for both the Caffeine stitch pattern and icord bind off are included with the pattern.
To celebrate recently reaching the milestone of releasing my 70th pattern, (I was totally shocked last week when I realized this) you can download Caffeine Fingerless Mitts with a 50% discount when you purchase any other pattern in my Ravelry store. Simply put both patterns in your cart and use the coupon code: celebrate at checkout. (or you can purchase it on it's own with a 20% discount and no coupon code required) until Monday March 12th!

Caffeine Cowl was released yesterday! Caffeine Cowl is the 4th and final pattern in The Caffeine Collection . This is one of my absolute favourite stitch patterns; 4 rounds of knits and purls followed by 2 rounds of pattern stitch (to keep it interesting) result in a beautiful, textured, squishy fabric that looks great in solid, tonal, or variegated yarns.
