Where there is a hat here for every age, there are mittens to match! These cozy hand warming beauties will complete the set with a coordinating Sled Run Hat. The busy, two-color pattern perfectly evokes the rambunctious fun of sledding on a bumpy hill. Knit in the rnd, the simple charted patterns are a great ice-breaker for newbie colorwork knitters.
The Sled Run Mittens pattern is designed by Mary O'Shea (Tullymongen Designs) as part of the design collection for our 11th annual Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2021 are applied directly to our scholarship fund, administered by Foster Care to Success.
This Red Scarf scholarship pattern is knit in Bare Naked Wools Festivus 6.0 Worsted (Merino/Cashmere/Silk) in the limited-edition, custom colorways Rudolph, and Elf, Kent DK in White Caps. A portion of Festivus yarn sales go directly to the scholarship fund.
Any pattern support is supplied by Mary O'Shea. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, or yardage requirement. The Sled Run Mittens do not include the hat pattern. You can find it here!
