Free Pattern: Aguamenti Cuffs

I wrote up another pattern, and put it up on ravelry, this time for free :

I designed them for the Harry Potter Knitting and Crochet House Cup, charms class, sept 09. The task was to make something based on Harry's use of the Aguamenti spell. I thought about it, and realised that even though we generally think of water as being cold, when you're in water, and you come out of it, it's always colder outside. So my reasoning was that water could keep you warm, and if you wrapped your arms in it, they'd be warm all day! And the aguamenti cuffs were born!

I took a stitch pattern from Jan Eaton's book, 200 Ripple Stitches, and adapted it quite a bit, to make a ripply, watery textured pair of mitts.

This pattern uses fingering/sock weight yarn, and knits up to a small/medium size (up to 9.5" circumference), but it can easily be made larger by substituting a thicker yarn and/or bigger needles.

Enjoy!
