Pattern Description:

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, but any aran weight yarn will be fine providing you get the gauge.

The pattern is available in three sizes, S,M and L. All can be made with under 100g / 3.5oz of yarn per pair.

My mum taught me to knit when I was 5 - I have early memories of sitting with a skein around my wrists while she wound it into a ball. I had a big imagination though and I suppose got interested in other things until I was older. When I was 21, I found myself at a houseparty, and one of the girls there had a bag of knitting. I thought it was so cool, I made her remind me there and then, and since ...
