HACK: A little fair isle
When I think about hacks my mind immediately goes to fair isle, I don’t know why! Just a little hint of patterning seems like the perfect addition, especially to an otherwise simple pattern. It’s a great way to use up bits and bobs of yarn and can really add a little bit of wow to a project.
Hunter likes fingerless mitts so a pair of Paddle mitts seemed just the thing for her. I had a wee ball of YOTH Big Sister left over from another project and some little bits of red and white in my knitting basket, all begging to become a project together!
Want to make a pair of your own? You can bust out the graph paper and pencils, or we have put together a little PDF of fair isle possibilities you can add to the Paddle mitts. Just work 1 round in the MC after the thumb gusset is on hold and away you go!
Yarn: YOTH Big Sister in ‘cracked pepper’, bits and bobs of red and white yarn
Needles: US 3 for the ribbing and US 5 for the rest
How is the TCK hackathon going for you? Have you hacked a pair of mittens yet?
