"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

Glitten pattern is available!

For those of you who wanted it, the Glitten pattern is available. There is a link on my sidebar. Also, the pictorial that I made some time back is linked there - you will need to refer to it also. Please enjoy!

Thanks for everyone's patience. It was a little more difficult that I had anticipated - putting it all down in a somewhat logical and understandable format. I hope I have accomplished that goal.

For the grins and giggle factor - I would love to know how many of you partake in my madness. Would you mind leaving a quick comment if you do download the pattern. Just an "I took it" is fine. I sure would appreciate it. There is probably a way that I should be able to figure out the numbers - but my brain is too tired to pursue it right now. I revert to old fashioned "please" leave a comment - thanks!

Feel free to share my site with whomever you want.... I put a lot of work into this project, and I hope that quite a few people will benefit.

Have fun.... I would love to see the outcomes - if anyone makes glittens - would love to see photos.

Now - I am going to go knit.....
Later, K

I printed your glitten pattern. My son asked me to make him some and I had never even HEARD of them. I am a new-ish knitter, I made him some gloves that he says have a couple of "ET" style fingers. Oh well, I'm going to give them a try! Thanks.

I printed off your pattern a while back and am now in the process of knitting a pair for a Christmas present exchange. I figured I'd start early!

Thank you so much for providing the pattern.

What a great pattern! I just finished my first glitton. Finally! Something that actually looks like a mitten without that ugly end cap sewed on. I knitted these in one color in worsted weight and they are extremely warm. I imagine with the fair isle knitting they will be even warmer. The pattern wasn't as complicated as I thought it would be. It's actually easy. I did modify the pattern a bit by using a standard pattern for a medium size. This seems to be for a large size. I also made the end of the mitten rounded rather than pointed. Guess what my adult kids are getting for Christmas this year?

A girl in my philosophy class bought a pair of these from this guy selling them on campus. I just had to find a pattern to make some myself (since I am new to the great white north and haven't built up a tolerance to the fridgid air! I cannot wait to make these (!), but sadly I will have to wait until after finals. Thanks for the free pattern!

Traveling in NZ and my 20-year old pair (purchased) fell apart. Lots of lovely wool here--needed pattern. Thanks!

Downloaded pattern. Lost a glitten, so I'm trying to make another pair as a new knitter.

Thanks so much!

Thank you for sharing the pattern and the tutorial. Have downloaded both. I hope to make these as soon as some of my other Christmas projects are off the needles!

Thanks for the pattern. I plan to make a pair a week for a year for the local men's shelter in the great white north. Wish me luck.

I was so pleased to find your free pattern. I live in New Zealand - cold winters. My 17yr old grand daughter from Japan stays with us and she asked me to knit gloves like glittens. Never heard of them, so thrilled to find them. Off to find some wool. Thank you very much.

Thanks for the pattern. I'll let you know how it works out. If I knew how I would put a link on my fb page. I also can't find my friends list so it may be a while.

I downloaded your pattern. Thank you! My son asked me to make him a pair of mitten-gloves, and these look perfect. I think I will play with the pattern a bit, to match his Christmas sweater.

I downloaded the pattern and am looking forward to using it to make something for MYSELF after I finish my gift projects. Thanks for making it available!! Will send a photo when finished. Best wishes from Brooklyn, NY

Hi, thank you for your pattern! One of the girls in my LYS has made many pairs, and I always admire them. I am working on my skills, and finishing up a couple projects before I tackle anything new. Then, I can't wait! Crazy, b/c we (in Michigan) have just had the snowiest, coldest winter on record. At least I will be ready for the next one!

Oh, goodie! Photographer's mitts, all figured out in advance so I can apply my likings without strain. Thanks!

By the bye, I'm blue bug most places--but neither Ravelry nor Google lets me use that name.

Thank you for the pattern, going to knit these in DK for my son. First go at a glitten.

Eija said...

Printed the pattern and I'm doing them already. Starting the last part now (gloves). I'm in ravelry and will add pictures when finished.

I think I have printed out your entire website! I was looking thru Ravelry for convertible's, and the obvious extra depth to the overlap caught my eye. Going to make the first pair plain to get used to the pattern, but looking forward to trying the fair isle as well. Very attractive. Also going to try it on cables, tho' I can break out the old DPN's if necessary. Thanks so much for taking the time to publish such a well thought out pattern.

Grabbed a copy.

May change these into full-on fingerless. My hands are always chilly in the office, so I like to keep a pair of fingerless gloves handy.

I just saved this pattern. I am wanting to make a pair for my yoga instructor as a karma gift. I cannot wait to get started!
