Pattern Inspiration: Yak-tacular Mitts for Summer Knitting

Warmer temperatures doesn't mean it's time to pack the knitting away! Spring and Summer is a great time to stock up on accessories such as hats, mitts and socks; come autumn, you'll be mighty glad that you knit through the summer!

Fingerless gloves are fun, quick projects to make no matter your skill level. Below are some of our favorite designs using Bijou Basin Ranch yarns. Enjoy!


From L-R: Northside Fingerless Mitts by Christine Marie Chen (top), Kamala Mitts by Ruth Garcia Alcantud (bottom), Pyramid Peak Hat and Fingerless Mitts by Marly Bird, Dual Cable Fingerless Mitts by Marly Bird, and Brigand by Hunter Hammersen.

A Little Mystery + The Best of Stitches West Giveaway

Put a little spring in your step with RosiG's latest Mystery KAL! We'll be casting on May 21 here in the Bijou Basin Ranch Ravelry group and would love to have you join in the fun - we're even offering a 20% discount on your yarn purchase (click here for details)!
We will be knitting a light and lacy stole with beads and 2 skeins of our Shangri-La yarn, a luxurious blend of yak & silk. If you'd prefer not to incorporate beads into your project, we're pretty certain it will be every bit as lovely, but this is a fantastic time to learn a new skill! If you are not sure about signing up for a Mystery KAL, click here to view Rosi's first mystery shawl design from last summer!
Which color of Shangri-La yarn will you choose?
The pattern is available here on Ravelry for a special introductory price of only $2.50; clues will be released weekly (6 in all) and once the MKAL is complete, the price will increase to $7, so be sure to sign up now!
