Our annual Holiday 'Giving Back' pattern is here! Meet the Kirkmichael Mittens! Scandinavian-style colourwork mittens with gusset thumbs and a soft knitted liner tucked inside. The outer layer is knit from two-contrasting colours of sport-weight yarn, and the liner from plain fingering-weight. This pattern is available to purchase in store and on Ravelry. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this pattern will be donated to the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank. Help us spread our community love a little further this holiday season.
