TRS Striped Mitten
This beautiful comfy-cosy striped mitten is knitted in Pura Lana - 50 % alpaca/ 50% wool, and it will keep you warm all winter.
The mitten patterns are so much easier to knit than the usual gloves, and definitely fun to make your own stripe colour combinations.
The pattern is available in Danish and English.
