Perfect for keeping little hands warm and really satisfying to make.

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 mittens are knitted flat on straight needles in plain grey with a white top. The polar bear ears, eyes and nose 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.
