Maranui Surf and Life Saving Club is a large wooden building right on the beach in Wellington’s Lyall Bay. It has been relentlessly battered by wind, has burned down and been rebuilt, and now houses a cafe on it’s top floor where you can get excellent coffee and a view over the sea.

These mittens are bright and cosy and necessary if you want to go walking on Wellington’s chilly waterfront. The long ribbed cuff holds them snug against your wrists. Make them in one colour or two, they knit up quickly and there is a size to fit everyone in the family.

This pattern is part of The New Zealand Collection which is available as an ebook comprising 20 patterns (some for women, some for men and some for children).
