    NEEDLES
    This pattern varies needle size in order to achieve the different finished sizes (see Gauge).

    • use one of the following needle sizes: 2.5 (2.75, 3, 3.25, 3.5) mm / US 1.5 (US 2, US 2.5, US 3, US 4) circular needle with a cable length of at least 80 cm / 32” (or needle size to obtain gauge) for colourwork.

    This pattern is sized by adjusting the gauge according to the size you wish to make. Take time to swatch carefully in the colourwork pattern to ensure a good fit, using the needle size you need to achieve the desired gauge.

    Waltz Fingerless Mittens | Christie Wareham-Norfolk in White Gum Wool 4ply Fingering

    These delightful fingerless mittens – Waltz by Christie Wareham-Norfolk – are inspired by the swirling, intertwining lines of Art Nouveau designs, which often remind me of dancers, moving and twirling. They are a great project for hand-spun yarn or mini skeins!

    SIZES
    1 (2, 3)
    Finished hand circumference: 16.75 (19.25, 22) cm / 6.5 (7.5, 8.75)” – recommended to be worn with 1.25 – 2.5 cm / 0.5”– 1” of negative ease.

    YARN
    The pattern was written with this yarn in mind: White Gum Wool 4-ply Fingering (100% Merino; 472 metres / 516 yards per 100 g)

    MC: 75 (100, 115) metres / 80 (110, 125) yards
    CC: 75 (100, 115) metres / 80 (110, 125) yards

    Unfortunately, the sample was lost in the mail, so we had to improvise for the photoshoot! We knit up a second sample in Schoppelwolle Zauberwolle, colorway Elefantentreffen, and BC Garn Semilla Melange, colorway Vanilla.

    NEEDLES
    3.25 mm / US 3 double-pointed needles (or needle size to obtain gauge)
    2.75 mm / US 2 double-pointed needles (or needle size one to two sizes smaller than gauge-size needle)

    GAUGE
    30 sts x 44 rounds = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in charted pattern, on larger needle, after blocking)

    Wisteria Sweater | Agata Mackiewicz in De Rerum Natura Albertine and Bérénice

    Let’s wander the streets of Brussels and Paris, searching for the hidden architectural Art Nouveau gems – houses, doors, windows, street lamps. Let’s explore Berlin’s Jugendstil tile art, marvelling at the colors and shapes taking form. Let’s get lost in the work of water color artists, glass blowers, jewellers, embroidery artists, and myriads more, who dive into the shapes and curves of plants and flowers, moving, flowing, mirroring.

    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine
    What it means to be an indie knitting magazine

    June 17, 2024 6 min read 2 Comments

    We've seen dramatic changes in the knitting magazine landscape over the past 12 months: Pom Pom Quarterly ceased publication at the end of 2023, Laine sold the majority of their company to one of the biggest Finnish publishers, and Amirisu first pivoted to books, and now to an online-only media outlet. Multicraftual magazines that often included knitting patterns were equally as affected: Making pivoted to a combined app and monthly membership business model, and Taproot first changed to a preorder model, and then very abruptly closed their business (the website is offline, hence no link).

    This has left us standing as one of the very, very few indie knitting magazines in the market.

    Hi my lovelies! When we received our latest restock of BC Garn's Semilla Melange (one of my favorite sustainable budget-friendly yarns - 100% wool, non-superwash, GOTS-certified), I couldn't resist: I had to pull out our box of De Rerum Natura Bérénice, the wonderful fluffy silk-mohair-merino yarn, to see if I could find a few color matches.

    And I did! 12 perfect matches – I couldn't believe it. So naturally, I had to share them with you!
