Woolly Loop Mittens Using Rowan Cocoon
These charming hand-warmers beg to be taken outside to play! Part of our Woolly Loop Accessories pattern, these mittens have a stockinette body and thumb, and a fluffy, loopy, cuff. In a chunky-weight yarn, your hands will be toasty warm—a great advantage for that snowball fight!
We’ve knit our Woolly Loop Mittens using Rowan’s Cocoon—a chunky, merino-and-mohair blend that has the appearance of a roving yarn. Warm and bouncy, with a subtle, silky luster, Cocoon gives great stitch definition and is unbelievably snuggly.
Medium adult, 7"/18cm around, fits up to 8"/20cm hand.
2 skeins Rowan Cocoon (126 yds/115m each) 1 skein in main color (MC) and 1 skein in contrast color (CC).

Plus a short length of smooth waste yarn for thumb.
