Free Knitting Pattern! – Baby Mittens

If you follow the blog then you know I am a knitter, there’s something very fulfilling about creating something from scratch and I find it so relaxing to sit down of an evening and knit away. One of my favourite items from the winter was my Rainbow Bobble Hat so I thought I’d share the matching Baby Mittens pattern for any knitters – or wannabe knitters! – to try out themselves.

This pattern is really simple so it’s great for beginners or for something to whip up really quickly.
