The Hutt Valley mitts uses a combination of stripes and simple cabled stitch which makes it look far more complicated than it is. Each row uses just one single colour to knit.
Extremely economical on yarn, this is a great project to use up remnant or leftover yarn.
With four sizes included, this is a great pattern for all the family, and can be made in any combination of colours to suit.
The pattern includes a chart, as well as written instructions. Instructions are also included for working the cable both with, and without a cable needle.
A matching hat is available.

I am a knitter, and have been knitting obsessively for the past 4 years, although I learnt to knit as a small child. Pattern design is my new passion, I love the freedom to design patterns that I can't otherwise find!
