Flashback Friday: Samoom
This is three for one today. These patterns were supposed to only be the gloves. However, many people asked if I would make them available as fingerless mitts and mittens. After releasing the pattern for the gloves, I re-worked it for the other two and released them separately. Can you imagine a wind so hot and dry that it is called poison? In this design, offset cables mimic sand moved by the wind. The cuff has Arabic lettering for the word Samoom stranded as a Middle Eastern flavored variation on Fair Isle. This is a perfect design to use that handpainted, variegated, or bright skein of yarn that is a bit too much knit by itself.
All versions of Samoom are available for sale on Ravelry: Samoom Gloves, Samoom Mittens, and Samoom Fingerless Mitts and on LoveCrafts: Samoom Gloves, Samoom Mittens, and Samoom Fingerless Mitts. If you don't want to sign up for either of these, please do contact me and we can work out how you can purchase the pattern.
