This pattern was part of a gift for knitters who attended my 50th birthday party on 14th December 2013. Since then I have received requests to make it available via ravelry… so I have!

If you enjoy this pattern, please consider donating £1 (or more) to Cancer Research UK or to a similar cancer charity in your own country.


These mitts are knit from fingers to wrist. The thumb is knit first, then the main part of the mitt, joining in the thumb at the appropriate point.
