When frost paints everything white and breath rises up as fog, you need something to keep your hands warm. Kindling is a pair of extremely cozy mittens with design features that maximize on warmth.

The extra-long cuff is intended to be worn folded and the slipped stitch pattern creates a really dense fabric that keeps the cold at bay. It also looks wonderfully delicate. Knitting the slipped stitch pattern is very meditative and using aran weight yarn means these mittens knit up quickly.

• Yarn: 1 (2) skein(s) of Posh Yarn Patricia Aran (85% Falkland Merino, 15% silk; 155 m / 170 yds per 100 g)

• Needles: 5 mm / US 8 dpns or size needed to obtain gauge
• 3 stitch markers

The sample is a size S and was knit using Posh Yarn Patricia Aran in Speak Low If You Speak Love.
