Adventure Mittens by Lucy Neatby - Digital Pattern
The Adventure Mitten is the perfect workshop-in-a-pattern to entice you into the delights of making double-knit mittens!
Since this project uses a sport weight yarn, the number of stitches is totally manageable.
A lovely long cuff will keep your wrists extra-warm when folded, or can be slid under your coat sleeves on the coldest days.
The elegant yet easy thumb is positioned at the side of the mitten, but additional directions are given if you prefer an off-set thumb.
As an additional bonus, to allow your own creativity to blossom, I have included blank charts for the palm and back of the hand so that you may create your own motifs!
A series of 15 video links are included in the pattern to guide you every stitch of the way.
