Kelley's great-niece, Mischa, loves and cherishes the hand knits she receives. Kelley designed these mittens and leg warmers just for Mischa, but they're sized for any young child. Kelley wanted a set that is machine washable and sturdy for our rambunctious youngsters as they enjoy the snow this winter. Both knitting patterns are free for you to enjoy!
These mittens & leg warmers are knit using the magic loop method for 2 @ a time in the round. These can be knit in a few evenings while you watch a movie or visit with friends. They are easy yet effective!
You'll need US2 and US5 circular needles with a cable length of at least 40" to knit these two-at-a-time with magic loop. Kelley used Berroco Vintage DK in color #21176 Fuschia to knit this set, but you can also substitute our brand new light worsted superwash merino.
We're excited to announce our newest line of yarn, Superwash Merino Light Worsted! As you probably know, Kelley tests every yarn we carry and extensively tests new additions to our in-house line, Coeur d'Alene Yarns.
Quality is very important to us, and we can confidently say this is one of the best superwash merino yarns on the market. It has a gorgeous light halo, and is probably the softest superwash yarn we've ever had on our needles. It knits up effortlessly and comes in several gorgeous jewel tones. We can't wait to see what you knit up with it!
