Amaryllis Mittens


The December pattern for the Year of Gifts is a pair of cosy textured mittens knit in a soon-to-be released yarn from Kelbourne Woolens, Camper. The official release will be March of 2020, but we chose Camper for this month’s design as a special bonus and thank you to everyone who has supported Kelbourne Woolens throughout 2020.

The Amaryllis Mittens are knit flat in pieces and then joined at the slipped stitch edge using a single crochet chain. This construction creates a firm, secure accessory designed to last.
