Hey, all, thanks for the great response yesterday to my request for test knitters! I have all I need right now, but I love how quick so many of you were to volunteer! So nice. I can’t wait to see how my pattern looks flying off of your needles – I hope it’s as much fun for you to knit as it is for me to anticipate!!
So today, I have something new to share: Striped Wristwarmers!
These babies knit up in just a few hours. They make an excellent weekend project. (Hello, holiday gifting? you could whip up a nice little pile of these for everyone on your list!)
You can use double-pointed needles, or a knitting loom – whichever you like. (Because it’s a pattern that is written in the round, it’s the same for both needles and loom, and no translation is necessary.)
I did something with this ebook that I have been thinking about for several months: I am releasing two versions.
There is the usual thing I do – the pattern + tutorial with gobs of step-by-step photos.
And there is something new – a “Just the Pattern” option. Just the Pattern is for those of you who are familiar with the techniques and can get by with nothing more than the written instructions. If you understand knitspeak and you know how to cast-on, knit, purl, and bind-off, you could probably get by with Just the Pattern. The biggest benefit of this option is the price, which is about a third of that of the full-blown tutorial.
I plan to make Just the Pattern options for all of my yarn-based tutorials, as time allows, so keep an eye out for those!
Anywho, if you’re in the market for a funky pair of stripey fingerless gloves to keep your spirits up this winter, I’ve got you covered:
BEGINNER level, step-by-step knitting tutorial.
Fully-illustrated 7-page PDF.
No tutorial, just the 2-page pattern PDF.
Enjoy! And do feel free to give me your feedback
Oh, I almost forgot! If you buy the pattern, but later decide you wanted the tutorial too, it’s not a problem. The Just the Pattern PDF includes a coupon code that will give you a discount on the purchase of the full-blown version so that it all evens out. You shouldn’t have to pay twice for the pattern portion!
