Buy 3, get 1 free: add any four of my patterns to your cart and the cheapest will be free.

Note: the mittens form part of a set. The pattern also includes the matching hat and buttoned collar. A matching cardigan (or sleeveless vest) pattern is available separately. Get both patterns – all accessories plus the cardigan – for €7; no voucher required, just add any Kissable accessory plus the cardi to your cart.

Baby accessories are the very embodiment of knitterly gratification, with a high ratio of cuteness delivered to effort expended. You might even learn something new: while these accessories are simple to execute, the pattern includes smart tips for a perfect buttonhole (on the collar) and an easier left-leaning decrease!

Use a bouncy, woolly DK yarn for warmth and stitch definition; you’ll probably find some scraps in your stash that are just perfect.
