Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit in the round

Pattern Description:

I can't think of a time since I was 6 years that I wasn't reading at least one book.
So if you're never without a book or need a gift for a book lover this mitten will keep your hands warm when it's cold outside but never to cold to read.

The pattern gives you the option of stranded knitting the motive or doing it in duplicate stitch.
The motiv is given as a colourwork chart.
If you use duplicate stitch you need around 1 yard (1m) per book, a good way to use up scraps.
