Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These mitts are designed to use up small amounts of sock yarn – only 170m, although if you knitted shorter cuffs you could cut this amount even more. I knitted a pair of socks with self-striping yarn, and wanted to design a project that would use up the remains of the ball. This yarn was West Yorkshire Spinners Cocktail yarn, in the Rum Paradise...

Knitting: Fingerless Gloves
These fingerless gloves are knitted up very quickly in the round. They have long cuffs to keep the wrists warm, and leave the fingers and thumb free to deal with touchscreen phones or dig change out of pockets. The rib is very stretchy, so they should fit a range of adult sizes. The pattern can also be adapted to fit larger or smaller hands, sim...
Knitting: Pillow / Cushion
This cushion is designed to be lovely and snuggly to cuddle up with. It’s inspired by traditional British Aran jerseys and cardigans, and the thick yarn and textured patterns make it a tactile treat. However, the design only uses two simple cable stitches to create the pattern, making it the perfect first cable project.
Knitting: Headband
British weather is notoriously unpredictable, and sometimes it can be hard to know what season to dress for.

The headbands are in all high street shops just now, but this is your chance to make your own individual version!
