I said I had also been planning to knit Charm! Lisette was thinking of using shades of pink or blue. I had already selected a rich, blue colorway for mine.
Then I thought, “Well if two’s company then three is a knit along,” and I thought I’d see if anyone else had this set of pretty fingerless mitts on their to-knit list.
If you’ve been putting it off, now is the time to bump them up the list! Add Charm to your Ravelry queue.
The Charm pattern will be good for an experienced knitter or someone ready to challenge themselves. There are cables and lace, but they are knit flat so you don’t have to worry about knitting in the round.
This version is at Midwest Yarn, a local yarn store in Wisconsin.
The pattern uses 2 hanks of Grace Hand Dyed for the multicolored version OR 2 hanks of Grace Wool and Silk for the solid color version. Both versions also take 1 hank of Grace Hand Beaded in a coordinating color for the trim.

You have time to get your supplies. I have a few works in progress (WIPs) to finish up before I can start mine.
I’m planning to cast on June 1!
Charm will be a great project to work on as the weather warms up because they are small and portable. They’ll probably work up quickly, too!
This Ravelry user has a nice review of the pattern and yarn in her project notes.
They will come in handy (haha) when the air conditioning fires up later in the summer. I love wearing fingerless mitts while I type because they keep my hands warm but leave my fingers free.
Yes! They keep my fingers warm as well. I think it has something to do with your hands being warm so warm blood is circulating.
Three Graces Book Giveaway!
To kick things off, I get to give away 5 copies of the Three Graces book! (US Residents only. Void where prohibited.)
Lisette is planning to knit her Charm for a gift. I’m planning to knit them for myself (I live in a cold area!).
To enter the giveaway, leave a comment on this blog post between now and midnight on Tuesday, May 21. Five winners will be selected randomly.
Tell me if you would knit them for yourself or someone else. Or why you like the pattern.
The Three Graces is full of pretty sweaters and accessories featuring the three Grace yarns: Wool & Silk, Hand Dyed, and Hand Beaded.
The Sweetness Cardi is another of my favorites from the book.
The Grace bag is also adorable. It takes just one skein of Grace Hand Beaded. Wouldn’t it make a lovely gift or lavender sachet for your lingerie drawer?
