A playful pair of mittens that mimic ladybirds. Keep your fingers warm and a smile on your (and everyone else’s) face while we await the return of these aphid-loving creatures from their winter hibernation.

The colourwork pattern is fully charted and adaptable for longer or shorter hands, narrower or wider thumbs. Written instructions accompany the colourwork chart, explaining how to work the cuff, top and thumb gusset.

The pattern is sized for average adult hands (circumference 6.5”/16cm, length 7”/18cm) but it can be adjusted by altering your gauge.

Yarn requirements:

  • 135-160 yards fingering weight/4-ply/sock yarn in main colour
  • 25-50 yards fingering weight/4-ply/sock yarn in contrast colour

You don’t even have to stick to red and black.

Available in high-res format only, no printer friendly version as contains colourwork charts.
