Day Trip Mitts and Winter Stripes Mitts kit by Skein Queen

Not in Stock


Knit two pairs of cosy handwarmers which would be perfect for a wintry day trip.

These handwarmers are knitted in the round with no shaping and the slot for the thumbhole easily incorporated by knitting it with a length of spare yarn which is later removed to pick up the stitches forming the thumbhole. This method allows for easy pattern continuity.

The handwarmers can be knitted using the magic loop technique or double pointed needles.
