Byrehope

As we bid the cold months of winter farewell there is still a nip in the air, early morning excursions still call for layers and the added warmth of wool.

Simple, yet beautifully detailed fingerless mitts, perfect for keeping the blustery winds at bay and your hands warm and cosy as you walk across the hills, take the dog for a run in the park or potter down the road to the bus stop.

Worked from the cuff to the fingers these mittens feature some interesting techniques while providing a clean canvas that lets the yarn shine in all its glory.

Mix and match colours for a little bit of cosy for or knit the mitts from a single skein of your favourite colour.
