Farmers' crops are growing rapidly. What seems to have just been little sprouts shooting from beneath the ground have suddenly grown into tall, leafy stalks. You look down the rows: clear, straight, and neatly planted. Close to you, the rows are well-defined. You can see the dirt and the stalks separately. But as you look up and into the distance, the rows start to blend together, becoming a vast sea of green.
The On the Farm Mitts are inspired by rows of Montana farmland, with the colorwork representing the well-defined rows that fade and blend into green, bushy crops. On the Farm is one of five knitting patterns in the "My Forever Home" Collection.
Mittens are all fine and dandy except for when you need to use your hands! You find yourself constantly taking your gloves or mittens off because you need to be able to use your hands. Unlocking the front door, sending a text message, knitting outside in the chilly weather, checking on the fall garden. Your most practical solution is to wear fingerless mitts - you can keep your hands warm and your fingers free - so you go about your daily life conveniently, even after the weather has turned cool! On the Farm is your favorite fingerless mitts pattern because you love the simplistic design and the DK weight coziness.
It's been a long day, a long week, a long month. You're exhausted and needing a simplistic, meditative knit, but a simple garter or stockinette project isn't your jam (probably because you'll fall asleep if your mind isn't engaged). Your go-to project for times like this is the On the Farm Fingerless Mitts pattern. It's simple, quick and easy to knit, but it's still engaging and interesting. You love the flow: simple 1-by-1 ribbing, 1-by-1 colorwork, a few increases here and there, a few rows of colorwork that gradually gets farther apart, and then stockinette. The project always flies by so quick! You have a couple pairs that you keep for yourself, and the rest are added to your gift knitting collection.
