These fun mitts are inspired by vintage Christmas lights, they are a great way to use up scraps of wool as the ‘lights’ use a tiny amount of wool. Make every row different or follow the colours in the chart. In Shetland, the ‘Yule’ is the whole festive season and these mitts would be perfect for keeping your hands warm throughout!
