Fun, colourful mittens that can be made either fingerless or with closed tops to keep your fingers toasty warm. They combine traditional stranded colourwork techniques and shaping, with a simple and modern geometric pattern. The cuffs begin with an I-cord edging that creates little loops for hanging or for attaching an optional string, because even grown ups can lose their mittens and you put too much work into these for that! Colourful reels of cotton inspired my friend Natalie’s wonderful dyeing. The colourwork pattern also echoes the shape of the ends of the reels, like the prints I made from them as a child.

I love these colours so much, but I’m also excited to see what else you come up with for them. Updates have now been sent to everyone who has ordered the whole book and you can also buy the individual pattern here.

The store is a little out of date, but it’s almost 1am, so I hope you won’t mind if I leave updating that until tomorrow!
