Self Patterning Yarns

Self patterning yarns are amazing to work with as they produce a striped or fair isle effect when one knits in plain stocking stitch. I bought some lovely Knitcol Trends yarns recently and started to make some fingerless gloves.

By the way, this Knitcol yarn is 100% pure merino wool, and can be machine washed on the gentle cycle at 40 deg C. The colour range is amazing and the yarns are widely available although I’ve included Amazon UK links here.

When my nephew saw them he wanted a pair too! So my mum produced a pair for him, using a matching plain royal blue yarn for the rib. The only trick here was to make sure you started knitting the self pattering yarn at the same colour point for each glove, so that there was a similar pattern on both gloves.
