Knitting pattern - Owl Fliptop Mitts - adult
One adult size fits most – shorter or longer options included.
Cute owlies for colder days, with a twist – flip the top and fingers are free for fiddly tasks! Chunky yarn and toasty fingers. An intermediate knit, with simple cabling. Looks great in natural and bright colours.
Great for yourself or that special hand-made gift.

I have a bag that say ' I knit therefore I am' - sums me up perfectly! I love to knit and love to design! I have knitted for years, and made and sold literally hundreds of owl gloves and fingerless mitts on-line. About 5 years ago, I decided to give designing and writing patterns a go, and I absolutely love it! The whole process is absolutely captivating, and I love to see other knitters' projects made from my patterns. My beautiful cavvy, Honey, is my constant companion, and she sleeps next to me on the settee while I knit. You can also find me on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/thelonelyseapatterns/
