Winter warmers - MITTENS crochet

Time to rug up

A decent drop in temperature overnight, 1 degree celsius at 7am this morning. How do I know?  I was out in it, ice covered windscreens to boot. Not complaining,  we have had a very mild autumn here in UK.

Perfect timing

So, the colder weather is perfectly timed with my latest pattern for full crochet mittens. I made these mittens for myself, just love these DEBBIE BLISS yarns

Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed Aran is a wool/angora blend. So if you love tweedy yarns but prefer something softer, this is the yarn for you. 

Debbie Bliss Fez is a camel hair/merino mix and is simply stunning and ever so soft.

Both yarns are delicious to work with, and both yarns soften and relax the more you work with them.

I am sure you will just love these yarns, the tweed is non-scratchy and there is also a great range of colours, do check it out.


Unfortunately, I had to buy a second ball of the Donegal Tweed yarn to finish the last 4-5 rounds of the mitten and the thumb section.  DOH!

However, if you were to use more of the Fez for the rib band you should be able to make the mittens using only 1 ball of each yarn.
