If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

Amrei mitts are part of a small collection of colorwork mitts. The other ones are Ice cream and soda mitts, Au Contraire, Beethoven Mitts and Tamiye.

All five patterns are available as ebook. If you bought one of the patterns before, 3.90 EUR will automatically be deducted from the ebook price upon purchase.

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.

Many thanks to oneyarn, cathy56000, DublinDoll, Nadeshda, Dmbautis, frazzled01 and Karina08 for test knitting!
