Mittens are some of my favourite thing to knit, so when the sweet Lainamourée sent me her beautiful yarn, I knew that it had to become something cosy for my hands. The pattern is relatively easy: I got inspired to use the slipped arrow stitches that was both featured in the Lucky charm shawl and the Little twigs jumper. I can’t seem to get enough of that stitch! Then the body of the mitten is worked in a very simple textured stockinette.

The little version was so sweet to knit! I added an i-cord to join the two mitts together, so they won’t get lost that easily this way (or so I hope!). One skein will be plenty enough to knit a pair for yourself and the mini version as well.

1 skein of Lainamouree Atlas (shown here in the Caramel au Beurre Salé colorway) 50% baby camel/ 50% silk 100g= 437 yards (400m) or about 437 yards (400m) of fingering weight yarn (if you don’t have a full skein of fingering weight, 70g should be plenty enough to knit the larger version)

US1.5 (2.5mm) needles (9”circulars or magic loop and DPNS for the Small and Medium sizes and magic loop and DPNS for the toddler size).
