The School Run Mittens were designed to keep chilly hands warm on cold winter mornings, whilst still be practical. If you have ever taken a child to school you’ll know its all zipping coats and wiping faces!


Designed with minimal ease. Choose a size that is closest to your hand circumference. For a tighter mitten go down a size, for a looser mitten go up a size.


Knit in the round and from the wrist up, both mittens are worked the same. The folded picot cuffs are worked with one strand of fingering on smaller needles and the hand is worked with two strands held double on larger needles. This means your mitten will be an equal thickness all the way through. If using the suggested yarn, you can pull a strand from the inside and outside of the ball. You could easily substitute the double strand of fingering for a single strand of DK for a contrasting hand, but it is important to still use fingering for the cuffs. 
The thumb gusset is worked with the hand and the thumb stitches are put on hold and worked after the rest of the mitten. Measurements are given in cm / inches.
