Avery Hand Warmers Pattern

My daughter is always getting her hands into things, so much so, that she hates having anything obstruct her ability to do so–including gloves. And so, for the soon-to-be cooler weather, I designed these little hand warmers for my curious little one, which are aptly named the “Avery Hand Warmers.”

Avery Hand Warmers by Rhonda Potteet of Thread Bears®The finished hand warmers feature a simple garter stitch and cable design, perfect for matching any Fall/Winter outfit. The non-bulky design and use of fingering weight yarn allows for items to snugly fit on little ones hands yet allowing plenty of room to move. These hand warmers are perfect for little ones who will be collecting acorns or picking apples in the cooler seasons.Avery Hand Warmers by Rhonda Potteet of Thread Bears®

The pattern is designed to make hand warmers for ages 12 months up to 6 years.

First Knitting Pattern!

It’s a new year, which means fresh opportunities, fresh new ideas! One new idea for this year: create more knitting patterns. So, I did!

Now available: The Budding Foliage Fingerless Gloves Pattern, in PDF format for knitting. These mittens feature a lovely bobble and leaf motif on the top of the gloves, with just a leaf motif underneath. Eyelet detail at thumb gussets. These make perfect three-season mittens.

Notes of Autumn

By Rhonda Potteet

It seems as though Fall is finally making it’s debut here in Desert, Arizona. Though Japanese Maple and the Mighty Oak are rarities in this part of the country, we are still lucky enough to see some color-shifts amongst the trees.

The Mulberry in my front yard has finally yellowed and begun to lose its leaves…
…so I finally felt inspired to finish up a few fall knitted items that I had begun in-between our home renovations. I created these “Fall Foliage Fingerless Gloves” from 100% Peruvian Highland Wool from Knit Picks Palette in a beautiful cornmeal color.
The upper-side has the bobbles and leaf motif. The underside is just the leaves.
I created this aran cowl from Debbie Bliss’ Cashmerino Aran in a lovely pumpkin hue.

And, since I loved the aran design so much, I created a super-slouchy hat with the same design. Created from a cashmerino in a spicy cinnamon color.

I possibly have some patterns in the works, so I will be sure to post as soon as (if) they are available!  😉
