Broughton Kit

Knit the Broughton mittens, a fun, challenging project inspired by traditional Norwegian and Estonian patterns with this kit. Kits include the pattern and yarn, in a choice of three colourways, so you can be sure of a successful project and are beautifully packaged for gifting.


The Broughton mittens features simple but effective small repeating stitch patterns, combined with a bold geometric cuff pattern. They include some new, fun techniques like the Estonian Kihnu braids at the cuff, and feature an optional flip-top opening. Ysolda designed the flip-tops because she wanted to be able to quickly use her fingers without risking a mitten falling in a puddle! For extra warmth, softness and a neat finish the mittens are lined with lambswool, which is used held double to add a pop of contrast on the cuffs.

The Broughton pattern is included in the kit, and can also be ordered separately if you prefer to substitute yarn.
