These mitts offer a contemporary interpretation of the graphic two-colour gloves traditionally knitted in Dentdale and the Scottish Borders. Worked over a simple-to-memorise pattern, in no time at all you will have knitted up a pair of striking and surprisingly elegant mitts.

Ecclefechan is a small Borders’ town, well-known as the birthplace of historian and satirist Thomas Carlyle, and famed for its tasty tarts.

Kit includes: Jamieson & Smith Shetland Heritage Yarn; Kate Davies Designs project bag; printed pattern for Ecclefechan mitts; Ecclefechan tart recipe and a sachet of tea to enjoy with your tarts.

Choice of colourways: "fluggy white" (an off-white / cream as shown in sample and first yarn photograph) or "sna white" (a brighter, lighter white to create the high-contrast look that is traditional for these gloves, shown in second photograph).

NEW! Limited edition colourways: Fluggy White and Mussel Blue (left); Madder (centre) or Indigo (right) (in final photograph)
