Aven Ivenda

The pattern for those was created as I knitted, so I'm surprised it turned out so well. :) 









Also on my tumblr

Here's the pattern. Feel free to use it - just don't forget to send me the photos!

Thank you! So many people encouraged me to publish the pattern (including you! I don't think there's a greater compliment a knitter could get than being asked to share the pattern :)) that I uploaded it to my Dropbox account: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/47649590/Aven%20Ivenda.pdf. I don't feel professional enough to sell my patterns... yet. :)

I *really* like these. If you're able to decipher your process, I'd be interested in making a pair myself.

What is your tumblr account, by the way? :) (if you don't mind being followed by a socially awkward nerdy knitter. :D)

These are UNBELIEVABLY adorable! I cannot wait to begin this project!

Where would you recommend finding this wool? Is there a certain brand that works particularly well?

Thank you!

Thanks a lot! Your comment was so kind and enthusiastic I just had to respond to it immediately. :D

I used Katia Austral, which is a merino/acrylic blend and is wonderfully soft and warm. However, I have to confess my choice of yarn was quite accidental - the yarn shop closest to my uni specializes in Katia, and I couldn't resist those pretty red skeins. So I can certainly recommend the yarn I used, but I guess anything that fits 3,5-4mm needles and is comfortable enough to be worn over hands could do. :)

EDIT: I don't know where you live, but I checked Katia website and the brand seems to be quite popular: http://www.katia.com/donde_encontrarnos.php?lng=EN. I hope this helps!
