New Pattern! Trigonal Mittens and Hat

Just before Christmas, I managed to sneak out my first self-published patterns – Trigonal Hat and Mittens. Available separately or together as an e-book at a small discount.

Trigonal Hat and Mittens

The samples are knit in Holst Garn Supersoft 100% uld but any fingering weight yarn will work. In fact, they would work well as stash-busting projects for your sock yarn remnants! The mittens require only 46 m / 50 yd of each contrast colour and 81 m / 89 yd of the main color.

The hat requires even less of the contast colours, using just 12 m / 13 yd of each and 185 m / 202 yd of main color.

I wanted to create a fun design using traditional stranded techniques but with a modern twist. The colourwork is inspired by current trends for geometric designs and bright, non-obvious colour combinations.

A lovely example of this is some work by Imogen Heath:

And this gorgeous embroidery by Smallest Forest:

And finally this awesome skirt by Les Pommettes, sadly no longer available.

I came across Holst Garn some time ago, but only got around to ordering some last week. The Supersoft is 100% wool and comes in a staggering 102 colours!
