RACHEL ATKINSON’S mittens are
close-fitting, with long cuffs for tucking
into coat sleeves. Her beautiful cabling
gives the mittens an understated
elegance. Rachel has been exploring
German rare-breed yarns (see her
article on page 35), and here uses a
yarn from Nature’s Luxury that blends
wool from the Coburg Fox sheep with
merino. This design suits rare-breed
wools perfectly, so why not try a DK
yarn from your favourite sheep?
