  1. These are very simple mitts but quite lovely. I like the added eyelet row for ribbon, icord, etc. Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for a brilliantly easy pattern – loved it to bits!!

    When I knit a pair of something whether it’s mittens, baby booties etc I always knit them at the same time on the same needle but using separate balls of wool. It never fails to ensure that you knit exactly the same amount of rows for each item.

    I have a lot of friends who have circulation problems and they would love a pair of these so I’m going to be very busy!!

    Good luck with your website and happy knitting!

    Best wishes

    Cheryl
