Now that cooler weather is in sight, it’s time to think about how we’ll keep warm in winter. So for October’s Knitalong, we’ve chosen Cailyn Meyer’s Cruiser mittens. They’re just the thing to keep our hands toasty warm! Knit in the round with ribbed cuffs and featuring a cable motif on a stockinette background, they’re great for both women and men.
The Cruiser pattern is free. Click here to download your copy.
For our Cruisers, we’ll be using Rowan Creative Focus Wool, a wonderful blend of wool and alpaca. It’s hearty yet soft, great for everything from hats and scarves to sweaters and blankets. For Cruiser, it has the stitch definition to make the cables stand out and will feel soft and warm on your hands.
As the October Yarn of the Month, Creative Focus Wool is 10% off through October 31, 2012.
The Knitalong begins on October 1. To join in, just visit the Knitalong thread on Ravelry. Post a photo of your finished mittens by the end of the month and you could win a $20 gift certificate to Loop!
