Braeburn Mitts Kit by Amy Van De Laar

£18.75 - £25.00

We now offer handy kits for this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make these perfect Mitts, a limited edition button badge and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting! 

There’s nothing better on a chilly winter’s day than slipping your hands into a pair of cosy handmade mitts. And when the mitts in question are as glorious as these beauties from Amy Van De Laar of Baroque Purls, it’s even more of a pleasure! You can buy the Braeburn Mitts pattern directly from Amy here.

The Braeburn Mitts are just a joy – to make and wear. With their addictive colourwork design, resembling little trees or fruit, they knit up in a flash! They also fit like a dream with ribbed cuffs and different customisation options. We were overjoyed that Amy chose our Appledore DK to make these snuggly mitts. What a match made in heaven! We’ve included kit options to make the two different coloured samples Amy has chosen, plus a few of our own. We can’t wait to see what you decide to knit!
