Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knitting in the round

Pattern Description:

My beloved son tends to 'run hot', and refused to wear gloves as a baby. I tried pinning them to his sleeves, attaching them to strings through his coat - but he cunningly managed to lose at least one, every time.

Embroidered with a cartoon favourite, they're bound to keep your toddler amused and warm on the coldest - or mildest! - winter days!
