Whether you’re a novice mitten knitter or have plenty of experience, you’ll discover that The Year of Mittens by Kelbourne Woolens is a wonderful collection of designs that are addictive. The collection begins with a basic mitten pattern including links to helpful video tutorials to guide you as you go. An additional 12 patterns – one for each month – add lace, cables, multi-color patterns and more to expand your mitten knitting skills. The collection is available as a PDF and not as a printed pattern.
A Year of Mittens was designed using Cumbria Fingering by The Fibre Co. Cumbria Fingering is a heavy fingering-weight yarn made from fine Merino for softness, wool from the English Masham sheep for a beautiful heathered color, and Argentinian mohair for strength and luster. Fabrics made from Cumbria Fingering are soft yet strong, making it a perfect yarn for everyday knitwear.
We’ve created a Year of Mittens Kit with everything you need to start your mitten knitting including three skeins of Cumbria Fingering, 2 sets of double point needles and a PDF copy of the collection. And like our Novice Sock kits – you’ll save 15% on our mitten kit!
