Bramble by Anna Elliott

This pattern is part of the Nature Collection which comprises three beautiful hat and glove/fingerless mitten sets by talented British designer, Anna Elliott. Each of the three designs features a different technique - Acorn is beautifully textured, Bramble is richly bobbled, and Flora features gorgeous colourwork. To buy all three patterns together go to the Nature Collection listing.

Although this pattern was written for Whitfell DK, it would be just as good in Milburn DK and many other of our DK yarns. 

The sumptuously warm Whitfell DK baby Alpaca lends itself beautifully to this richly textured pattern. The hood is perfect for keeping you warm and cosy while adding a touch of whimsy to your outfit. The mittens are warm and toasty with a deeply textured upper giving way to a comfortable and practical palm knitting in stocking stitch. With a range of sizes this is the perfect knitted set for all the family.
