New Pattern: Penny Post

I am really happy to share with you photos of the newest Thread Forward pattern, Penny Post.  The pattern is for a pair of fingerless mittens, inspired by the stitch pattern in Miss Lambert’s Knitted Cuffs – Shell Pattern, the ninth pattern in My Knitting Book (1843, First Series).

For Penny Post, I used the shell stitch pattern on the cuff and around the top of the hand with plain stockinette through the hand.  I used a palm gusset for something a little different and found I really like the fit around the hand and thumb.  IMG_3846

The pattern is available through my Ravelry Store for USD$4.00 but is available for  50% off until December 14 at midnight EST using the code LASTMINUTEGIFT.
