Careena Mittens Kit

from 24.99

Everything you need to make these monochrome penguin mittens from the softest merino wool. These mittens are designed especially with babies and toddlers in mind. They have extra long cuffs to stop them from falling off and the wool is non-itchy and machine washable. The monochrome penguin faces are loved by babies who are drawn to high contrast and by toddlers who enjoy the fun faces peeking out of their sleeves. They are also really satisfying to make too.

KNITTING LEVEL:  For sizes 0-6M and 6-12M the pattern is EASY and for sizes 1-2Y and 2-3Y the pattern is INTERMEDIATE

THE WOOL:

The wool is 100% merino, milled in the UK in Yorkshire. Merino wool is perfect for babies and toddlers as it's luxuriously soft, non-irritating to sensitive skin and it helps to regulate body temperature by being both insulating and breathable. Being designed especially with babies and toddlers in mind, the merino in our kits is also non-itchy and machine washable. 

THE KNITTING PATTERN:

The mittens are knitted flat on straight needles in plain white and the penguin faces are added at the end using duplicate stitch. The knitting pattern contains instructions for thumbless mittens in sizes 0-6M and 6-12M and mittens with thumbs in sizes 1-2Y and 2-3Y. Alongside the pattern booklet, you also get a Knitting Techniques Guide. This can be used together with the video tutorials to learn to knit as you go.

The pattern and techniques guide are printed in Brighton on recycled paper.
