City Stitchette

If each day brings an exploration of color and texture, whimsy and playfulness, then it's a good day! Everything in my shop is handmade by me, based on an original knitting pattern that I sketched, charted out, wrote in long hand, and revised until I was satisfied. I'm happy sharing one-of-a-kind items on Etsy!

Welcome to City Stitchette, where I sketch new design ideas, write my own knitting patterns, shop for fabulous yarns, and handknit unique designs. My designs are about strong texture and color, and always about soft and cozy.

Fitted styles of knitted mitts (in contrast to slouchy or loose-fitting mitts) may stretch just a hair the more often that you wear them, but if you have a special request regarding fit or hand size, please convo me. The mitts and hats that I knit fit the average woman's hand or head, respectively.

After wearing knitted mitts repeatedly, yarns may "pill" (tiny balls of fibers that adhere to the surface of the knitted yarn), especially cashmere and cashmere-blend yarns. This is a normal sign of wear, and while some people accept pilling as a normal texture development, some people do not. If you're in the latter group, you can use sharp snips to *carefully* snip off the pilled balls--but be mindful not to snip through yarns.

Fingerless mitts are great to wear indoors and outside, for warmth or for added color . . . Hats and cowls keep you warm and cozy . . . and I am happy to share my designs with you!
