Kindling Mitts

£3.25

Published in Knitvent 2015

Description

These mitts are the perfect companion to the Kindling Hat. You’ll find the same rustic character and easy-to-knit cables in the toasty Kindling Mitts. Perfect for chopping a big stack of firewood, or just keeping hands snug while waiting for the train.

The fingerless mitts would make a great gift. They’re unisex, so everything depends on your yarn choice. In roughhewn tweed or heathered fibres, they’re as manly as it gets. But knit the Kindling Mitts up in creamy colours and luxury fibres and you’ve got an elegant, feminine pair of wrist-warmers.
