I am very pleased to present Family Mittens, a pattern recently published in Taproot Magazine's third issue, Retreat. The pattern has six different sizes to include the whole family. I used Puffin, Osprey, Lark, and Chickadee: chunky and quick for Men (Puffin), soft in Aran for the Ladies and Older Child (Osprey), lofty worsted for the Young Child and Toddler (Lark), and gentle-to-the-touch sport weight for the babes (Chickadee). Something for everyone--and you get to sample 4 Quince & Co. yarns if you make them all!
I'd like to thank the wonderful Fettig family for modeling the mittens on the hottest, most muggy day of the summer. It was the least kindest conditions you could ask for, especially considering this was shot for a Fall issue. As if the heat and humidity weren't enough, it was just about to begin raining and the darling little babe, Mabel, was getting hungry and the active toddler boy, Jonah, was getting more active by the minute. We had about 8 minutes in their backyard. But, it was fun and turned out fine! So, thank you Abe, Hannah, Jonah, and Mabel.
