The warmest mittens you can ever make! The outer mitt is worked with sock yarn double stranded with a gorgeous fluffy alpaca and silk laceweight. And then just in case that’s not quite enough, a lining is worked in the laceweight alone, to create a deliciously soft extra layer of warmth.

For the mitts, choose a size about an inch/2.5 cm larger than your hand… there are nine sizes, finished circumference from 6 to 10 inches/15 to 25.5 cm.

The hat is worked top down, in five sizes from 16 to 24 inches/40 to 61 cm in circumference with customizable length. It’s designed to use up the leftovers from your skein of sock yarn. If you are only making the mittens, you’ll need most of the skein of laceweight, but less than half of the sock. The hat can be worn slouchy or fitted, as you prefer, and the length is adjustable to your preference - sizes given work for teens to adults.
Note about the pictures: in the last image, where there are two pairs of mittens, the upper of the light-coloured mittens is turned inside out so you can see the lining.
