Joy Of Christmas Mittens (Child)
FREE pattern available when you sign up for emails from SewKnitCreate.
All profits from sale of complete mitten pattern (child & adult size) will go towards bringing joy this Christmas to angel tree children.**
The holiday season is full of traditions, gatherings, and merriment! Memories made with our children: picking out the perfect tree, watching their eyes light up when they drink their first cup of cocoa, cutting lacey paper snowflakes, making cookies, and reliving the childhood wonderment of the first snow upon their tiny world.
These mittens were inspired by the book The 12 Joys of Chrismas by Tomas and Sheri Seibold. This book “celebrates the timeless sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and feelings of a holiday that brings families and friends together in a season of shared ideals, traditions, and lasting joys.” You can purchase the book at Sheri’s shop.
