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.

Hey there, I'm Melanie and in my real life I'm an IT specialist, mother of three and a semi-successful housewife. In my secret second life I design knitwear. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I spend my time combining colors, shapes and textures into freewheeling designs that are uniquely my own. I've been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small, and I've also self-published my own patterns and e-books. I love collaborating with creative types from all over the world.
