Heart in my Hands Mitts Kit
These mitts came about from the phrase ‘Holding your heart in my hands’. They are designed so that the hearts are secretly held safe in the palm with a flower motif on the back of the hand.
Initially published in Knit Now Issue 25 (August 2013), using Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift, the mitts also work incredibly well in the yarns offered here.
Each yarn is supplied in 25g amounts, representing a big saving for the Erika Knight Wool Local which is usually sold in 100g skeins. The kit will actually give you enough yarn to make two pairs of mitts if you swap the two main colours for the second pair!
