The leaves are falling and the temperature is dropping, so it’s time for hot drinks and warm mittens. I love a hot pumpkin spiced beverage this time of year. So, for those of us who believe a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and clove can make the world a better place, I have made a mitten pattern.

I hope you will enjoy this pattern, and if you need any help, please do not hesitate to contact me in my Ravelry group ‘Skeindeer Knits’. It’s the best place for swift support.

The suggested yarns are categorised as different weights (sport, fingering, 4ply). This is often because these yarns are from countries that don’t use these categories. However, if you hold strands from each yarn together side by side, you’ll notice they look very much the same.
