AGATHA YARN KITS USING OUR BEAUTIFUL HAND-DYED BLUEM SOCK YARN ARE NOW AVAILABLE TO ORDER. Please note, this kit does not include the Agatha pattern. The pattern is only available by purchasing my new book, Echoes, which you can do by clicking on the link above. Your kit will be sent at the same time as your book.
The Agatha mitts are inspired by Agatha Christie's books - especially the amateur sleuth and knitter Miss Marple. These fingerless mitts are knitted from the cuff in the round, using a lovely repeating colourwork motif. Thumb stitches are placed on waste yarn whilst the upper hand section is worked. Finally, the thumb is knitted to finish.
Agatha is knitted using Susan Crawford Bluem Sock, a fingering weight yarn, worsted spun with a high twist. The Bluefaced Leicester yarn is a soft but resilient fibre and combined with a small amount of nylon, it creates the perfect fabric for socks or for hard wearing mittens.
You can now purchase our hand-dyed yarn kit to create your own pair of Agatha using four 25gm mini-skeins of BLUEM SOCK, one of each of four shades.
Agatha is shown here knitted using shades Hay Bale, Lime Mortar, Canopy and Herb Garden.
Choose our mini-skein bundle shown or alternatively choose the 'custom' option to select four shades of your choice from the beautiful range of colours in Bluem Sock.
