Shirley is a treasure worthy of Johnny Depp jumping off the Black Pearl to come and claim. She designed these mittens for E, a delightful one year old boy who tries to squirm out of gloves as soon as they are put on. These have more staying power.
They look great in variegated yarn such as the rainbow-coloured Araucania Laguna.
They also look great striped, such as these made with Rico Design Essentials Soft Merino Aran.
The mittens use about 40g of aran yarn for the pair. Shirley has donated the crochet pattern to us, and we’ll email it to you for free with purchases of our aran yarn over £5.
