Amrei is a very old german woman')s name which I totally love. I don't know why, but I have this picture in my mind of a woman knowing the forests, knowing every herb by name and knowing everything about curing diseases and brewing potions. Surely such a woman would need mitts to protect her hands while gathering herbs, and maybe they would have a small embroidery, showing whom they belong to. Nothing complicated, just a small motif That was how these mitts came to my mind. They knit up very quickly and the embroidery is done in a minute, too. All in all it's a quick and lovely project, making the perfect accessoire for yourself or a nice last-minute gift for christmas, too! The mitts are knitted bottom-up in the round and the motif is applied using duplicate stitch. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, k2tog, duplicate stitch GAUGE 16 stitches and 20 rows = 2 inches in stockinette SUGGESTED YARN 120 meters of Sport weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Zitron Lifestsyle

I’m Melanie, and I combine texture and color into wearable modern designs that are both playful and beautiful. I design to surprise — from matching cheeky stripes with elegant lace, to choosing unexpected color combinations. I love to collaborate with other creative types around the world, and my patterns have been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I find inspiration in the landscape, history, and culture.
