Warming mittens to knit

These cute Lindgren Mittens from MillaMia’s book Winter Knitting will keep tiny hands toasty through winter.

These Scandi-style mittens are a great gift for any little ones in your family. The blunt, loose shape makes them nice and easy to slip on and the i-cord helps stop them from dropping off. They’re knitted using a combination of garter stitch and stocking stitch and come in three sizes to fit ages 1–4 years old. The yarn used is Milla Mia’s luxury Soft Merino, made from 100% merino wool that feels super soft against the skin.

You’ll find more variations for the mittens, including stripy, heart and snowflake patterned, as well as loads of other Nordic winter knits in Winter Knitting, out now.
