I was in the "A Very Potter Musical" swap last year. My partner, Opaka and i both love the line, "Red Vines: What the hell can't they do?"

So, i knew i had to make something that reminded me of Red Vines. But what? Then i found the mock cable. And thanks to Wise Hilda Knits, i learned to knit a mock cable rib... which, when knit in red, totally looks like licorice!



P.S. Thank you, Opaka, for the photo!


By the way, i've posted these on ravelry. No pattern yet, but i think i might try to knit up another pair and maybe i'll try to get a pattern written down, if anybody would be interested.

Edited to add: I put the pattern up on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/red-vines-mitts

Those are awesome.  From the thumbnail I totally thought they were made of licorice initially.

I made another pair this weekend. I added 6 rows, and they ended up being the perfect length to fit into the cardboard dish in the Red Vines packaging. Needless to say, i had fun taking photos.




There are a couple more photos on my blog. Smiley
