Frost and Twilight Mitts

A knitting pattern by Josie Mercier

This mitten pattern is designed for the coldest of winter days. These mitts are knit using a simple four row slip-stitch pattern that creates a fantastically thick, squooshy fabric. Worked in worsted weight yarn they are a quick knit, and are sized for both children and adults so you can make a pair for everyone in the family.

This pattern is also available as part of the Kith & Kin Collection.

Note: PDF includes both English and French versions of pattern; print pages 1-3 for English or pages 4-7 for French.
