Designed by Dagmar Mora, these fingerless mitts are knit flat and wrapped around the hand to imitate spats. The feather and fan lace gives a lovely texture that showcases variegated yarn well, yet also works well with solid yarn. Sizes: Women’s S[M, L]
Devant la cheminée
Mona NicLeoid’s legwarmers feature a simple faux cable pattern and cute ruffles. FYI, the name of the pattern means “In front of the chimney” in French though the pattern is in English.
Spick and Spats
Madelaine Pippa Bartlett’s version of spats features baby cables and a picot edge. Can also be worn with the top folded down in a cuff.
Front Panel Sweater
Caitlin ffrench’s cardigan jacket features a front overlay that reminds me of aviators or a mechanized style. If you don’t want to knit the whole sweater, she suggests knitting the panel and sewing it on your favorite sweater pattern. Knit in super bulky yarn for a fast knit.
Zoe Bogner’s spats pattern can dress up any style of shoe or boot. Pictured project by BinaryGoddess who added stripes and a cuff.
