The Butcher’s Broom Mittens are perfect for the first snow of the season and to give some cuddles and warm to your hands during the cold months.
The pattern is for medium level knitters or if you want to adventure into making your first attempt to knit mittens. You will start from the cuff ribbing and slowly the increases for the thumb. Then you put the thumb stitches on hold and work the rest of the hand. For last you will knit the thumb putting the stitches on the needles again.
Except for the ribbing, you will only use one stitches and to make the fair isle motif you will use the second colour.
I promise, it’s easier than you think, just follow the pattern round after round.
