Avid community knitter Elizabeth Durand generously offers the use of her 4-needle mitten pattern for the afghans for Afghans project and other charitable purposes.

Elizabeth’s mitten pattern is hosted on the afghans for Afghans website.

We hope you will make at least one pair of wool mittens for us to send to the people of Afghanistan. Thank you.

Elizabeth also shares her on-line tutorial to help you knit well-made, warm mittens --

Be sure to watch the gauge to ensure a dense fabric for necessary warmth.
