Sun Dial

Sun Dial is the third pattern released for my Time on my Hands e-book. These are simple ribbed mitts with mirrored closed loop cables on the thumbs. You can favorite and queue them on Ravelry.

The pattern is written in three sizes: 7.25 (8, 8.75)”/18.5 (20.5, 22) cm hand circumference length. I believe these are simple enough to be knit men or women. The cable directions are provided either as charts or line-by-line directions. The mitts are worked in Green Mountain Spinnery‘s Wonderfully Woolly yarn, another beautiful US wool from a near by spinnery. You’ll need 130-172 yards depending on the size you choose. These mitts can be knit in just a few hours, or a weekend even if you’re not the speediest knitter. The worsted weight yarn and simple pattern make them fly by.

The pattern is available on it’s own for $4 or as part of the e-book collection which gives a significant savings over buying the patterns individually. Clicking the button above will take you to an automated paypal checkout where you can pay with credit/debit card or paypal balance. The download will automatically be e-mailed to you, and added to your Ravelry library if you have an account there. Thanks to Ravelry for making this feature available to members and non-members alike!

These mitts are classic, a little elegant and a lot hard-wearing. Kinda like the sun dials they’re named after. The celtic knots are a nod to the ancient cultures that built more than a few memorable sun dials. If I could have afforded it, I would have done the photo shoot at Stonehenge!
