With a beautiful cable pattern, consisting of twists and bobbles, these are soft and warm mitts that you won’t want to take off – seriously I’ve been there!
The alpaca and merino mix yarn lends itself to being a first layer, even for sensitive skins, so you’ll even be tempted to keep this yarn on your needles longer than necessary! and maybe even knit some for your family’s winter gifts too.
These are knitted flat, as every row is different and you’ll find it easier to keep track knowing that one row is purl-based and the next knit-based.
Included in the digital download are two versions, one with full colour images to illustrate features, and a printable version with fewer photos and less colour.
