Named after the Alderman Apple which is a similar colour to these mitts! The Alderman is an English (possibly Scottish) apple thought to have originated in the 1920s.

These mitts are pretty and feminine, but with close-fitting all-over cables they are a lovely warm fabric for the winter. Leave out the picot edge and you have men’s mitts, too!

Knit Now magazine is working with a team of designers to produce a collection of Marvellous Mittens to support the Roald Dahl Marvellous Childrenโ€™s Charity. This is the first release from this collection.

Roald Dahl is famous for his stories and rhymes that still spark childrenโ€™s imaginations today. Much less well known, however, is how he often went out of his way to help seriously ill children โ€“ reading at hospital bedsides and even helping to buy special wheelchairs that parents couldnโ€™t afford themselves.

Roald Dahlโ€™s Marvellous Childrenโ€™s Charity continues this fantastic work by providing nurses, equipment, carers and toys to help make life that little bit better for seriously ill and disabled children living with life-long neurological and blood
