It turns out that the fingerless mitts from our recent workshop at Cafe Creme’s Crafty Cafe session were quite popular, so, I have left a basket of completed mitts in the Cafe for you all to purchase if you wish.
I figure that not everybody will want to make their own and that ready made is sometimes preferable. Christmas is coming after all and who doesn’t want some lovely warm, soft mitts as a pressie? They are all made with blends of alpaca, silk and merino wool and they come in a range of lovely shades.
So, get yourself down to the cafe, on the High Street in Penistone and try a pair on. Or, if North Sheffield is just a bit too far for you, get in touch and I will happily send you a pair.
If you would still prefer to make your own, the pattern is available on Etsy for the aran weight version and I will write up the pattern for the chunky version as soon as I get a minute.
When you’ve had a go and think you might like to make gloves and mittens for all your family for Christmas here are a couple of other books which have loads of patterns in them for you to try, so you don’t get bored.
