I’m over the moon to have had Hodgepodge Mittens released this week in Holla Knits!

This pattern was sort of my challenge to myself to K.I.S.S. (keep it simple, stupid).  I so love designing colorwork but many of my patterns tend to be involved and perhaps intimidating to knitters with less experience.  I wanted to design colorwork that was easy to knit but didn’t look it.  These mittens have full charts but each row has a 4-stitch repeat to make it rather easy to follow.

I’m super excited to have been given the chance to collaborate with Holla Knits and Allyson Dykhuizen!  Allyson and I have much different aesthetics when it comes to design and this was a great opportunity to collaborate on making something slightly out of our regular routine for both of us! I think the pairing worked pretty well!

The whole Holla Knits Accessories collection is so fun!  Each pattern is so unique and has such a fun playful feel, my favorite type of design.  I’m so happy to be a part of it!  I am looking forward to carving out a little time to try to knit one or two of them myself.  I’ve had KaPOM on my mental to-do list since I first saw it.  I hope you all find a favorite in this collection too!
