Show your llama love with a pair of densely knit worsted weight mittens that will keep the cold out and the warmth in this winter! This full colour pattern comes with two sets of charts, one in colour and one in black-and-white for those who want to break out the coloured pencils to create their own colour schemes.

This pattern is for you if… You live in a really cold climate and want a pair of mittens in a thicker yarn with a tight gauge. You love llamas!

Move along if… You hate tacking floats, as there are some spots with long gaps between colours.
