The Knitter - - Moss Rose - Caro ne Birkett

SPRING MAY be of­fi­cially here, but there’s every chance we’ll have more than a few chilly days ahead! Keep your arms feel­ing toasty with these el­bow-length mitts, de­signed by Caro­line Birkett. They’re dec­o­rated with a pretty stranded colour­work rose pat­tern, and fin­ished with sim­ple rolled edges. The armwarm­ers use Jamieson & Smith’s clas­sic Jumper Weight yarn. This is a 4ply Shet­land wool that comes in a huge choice of colours, so you can pick the per­fect shades to com­ple­ment your coat!
