Overcast Fingerless Mitts - Brine Dyeworks Yarn

Charity, from Brine Dyeworks, sent us a second package of this gorgeous yarn to be given away in our July 2021 Yarn and Hook Giveaway.

Dirty Rainbow Sock Set – Brine Dyeworks

  • Light Fingering Weight Yarn
  • 75/25 Merino Sock: 75% Superwash-treated Merino and 25% Nylon
  • 4-ply yarn
  • Colors: Soot (50 g/321 yds) and Plum Jam, Brulee, Bosc, Nori, and An Oily Swell (each 20 g/92yds)
  • Recommended Hook Size: 3.5 mm (E) – 4 mm (G)

Charity runs Brine Dyeworks and her shop is located in Alberta, Canada.

This whole yarn dyeing thing started because I couldn’t find the “right” colorways to knit a particular shawl. Not one to back down once I have my heart something, I signed up for a yarn dyeing class at my LYS, thinking “oh, I’ll do this, and then I’ll dye what I need, and that’ll be that”… 48 hours later, I had watched hours of dyeing videos on YouTube, and ordered a bunch of bare skeins and dye powders. The rest is history. I launched Brine Dyeworks in April of 2020, and have been thrilled to watch my business grow over the past year, pandemic and all!

I used to be a chef, so my inspirations draw heavily from food. I love tonals and semi-solids, and gravitate towards deep, saturated jewel tones, and dark, moody colorways. I love knitting socks, and doing stranded colorwork, and I think both of these craft preferences influence my colorways and the bases I stock in my shop.

I loved working with this Merino Sock blend. The yarn was soft to the touch but not stretchy. The yarn was easy to crochet with, it never snagged or fluffed as I crocheted. The colors included in the Dirty Rainbow Sock Set are incredibly deep and vibrant. I love how my finished stitches look and how easy it was to work with this yarn.

Notes

  • Color A: Nori (green), Brûlée (burnt orange), An Oily Swell (Blue), Bosc (yellow).
  • When I add a new color of yarn, I start with a standing st. If you prefer a sl st join and a turning chain, feel free to substitute.
  • Leave one yarn end for each color section long enough to use for seaming the sides of the glove together. 
  • You may customize the length of the gloves by working the repeat as many, or as few, times as you wish. Every 5 rounds you add with the stitch pattern, will add approximately 1-inch of height.
  • I use an invisible join to finish off my final round of stitches, you may substitute a sl st to join if you prefer.

Finishing Instructions

Fold the glove in half widthwise and whipstitch the two edges together using the same yarn colors as the section you are seaming. Begin at the cuff and seam R1-R4 together.

Do not seam R5-R14 together. For these rows, just weave in your ends and leave the section open for the thumb to fit through in the gloves.

Seam R15-R20 together.

Weave in any remaining ends securely.
