Little Miss Yellow's set is here. Very basic socks here on virgin snow.
The mittens are striped with the rainbow yarn I used for some socks and mittens already before Christmas, and some navy blue also from my old stash. I call this pattern "Grandmother's three colour pattern" as I have not seen it anywhere but in the half finished mitten I have inherited, and of course in my memories from the time I had such mittens.
Little Miss Purple's mittens from my previous post in a closeup. This is a new version of "Grandmother's two colour pattern" that I have in fact found on the Internet under the name of Ailin lapaset, but they make no gusset for the thumb like my Grandmother and I did. Using a third colour makes a big difference ...
... because the bicolor version has clearly vertical stripes:
Both of the Grandmother's patterns only use one colour at a time for each row, and the lifted stitches make them dense and warm.
Custom order not too tight not too itchy socks for a friend. Self-striping Step yarn from Austermann.
I wanted to show you a better photo of the other chemo cap from last week. This pattern is perfect for the 50/50 cotton and wool yarn I used:
It was a free baby hat pattern I just enlarged for an adult size.
