The Market Mittens

The Story Behind...

Inspired by the beach during winter; frozen seaweeds and tiny shells gathered on the shore glimmering in the cold clear light, the Market Mittens came to be.

This is a fun and quick Netflix and chill kind of make and as they are worked up in ONE PIECE (!!) you only have to fasten four threads in total per pair.

How amazing is that?!

Have fun and happy hooking.

  • I had the absolute pleasure of testing Tess’s #marketmittens pattern for @crochetedbytess of @sistersinstitch, thank you Tess. 
I used a #malabrigoyarns merino/silk that I bought last winter. I wound it and promptly misplaced the tag 😮 but it has made up beautifully with a 3mm hook. I added thumb holes into this pair as my daughter asked for them. I simply didn’t close at the end of round five and added a finishing dc into the same space as the first for the row. I worked four more rows and closed the ninth round with a slip st after I had dc2tog to correct the st count. The last two rounds were as the first four. 
My daughter has been waiting patiently for me to finish weaving in the ends. Now that I’ve done that for photos she will be over the moon she is now allowed to take possession of her mittens.
  • I had the fantastic pleasure and privilege of testing these #marketmittens for one my favourite designers Tess @crochetedbytess @sistersinstitch 
The written pattern is now released on the website and there is a video tutorial too!  This is a quick and straightforward make. Thank you so much Tess

It’s time to spread some love and to share another amazing crocheter here on Instagram. One I believe many already know from us here on @SistersInStitch ever since she created the third colorway for our CAL with @yarnandcolors last year: The Butterfly Effect CAL 2019. 🦋
.
She is an amazing designer, maker and crochet photographer who has a unique and soft romantic touch to everything she makes. 🌷
.
She’s one of the kindest souls you’ll ever meet as this wonderful designer truly embodies her very own name: Joy! 💕
.
Please head on over to her at @crochetroad, say hi and keep spreading the love! 😄🌸🍃
.
Happy Sunday 💖

May is coming to an end and with it a new one begin... For the June pattern and tutorial @sistersinstitch teamed up with the one and only sunshine Jill from @gumleaf_crochet ☀️💛✨

Together we (Tess and Jill) have designed a brand new “What Were You Thinking Square”. 🎉

It has been so much fun, lots of giggles and many things learned during the process. It’s truly been such a blast and we can’t wait to tell you all about it.. ..a little later! 😉
.
Until then, here is a little sneak peak of what’s coming your way this very Friday (5/6)! 🧡💛❤️

This evening I want to pop in and say thank you. Simple as that, nothing more nothing less. 💛
.
All I have done (and probably will do) wouldn’t be half as fun if it wasn’t for this amazing community of supporting and wonderful people here on this social platform.
.
Each and every cheer you on; I carry with me close to my heart and use in all the work I do. 💖 Thank you.
