I’m been beavering away these last few weeks to get this mitten pattern knitted up and photographed to release in time for Christmas. It’s such a quick and simple pattern that it will make a great last minute gift – in just a day or two these can be ready to go!
Knitted in A Stash Addict’s Solid Aran BFL, I used a slightly tighter gauge than normal to keep the warmth inside. The yarn is gorgeous to work with and blocks beautifully.
The pattern includes instructions for both the fingerless mitts and the full mittens, I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I thought I would leave it up to you. The mittens are grafted closed at the top, which is a really neat finish and helps them to keep their shape.
The pattern is available in three sizes, S,M and L. All can be made with under 100g / 3.5oz of yarn per pair.
