The Finnish secret to warm hands is warm wrists too (and we know because they told us). This gorgeous colourwork pair by Louise Smith has extra-long, on-trend cuffs to help you stay snug when you’re away from the fireside this winter.


These gorgeous mittens are just part of our Nordic ideas collection in issue 76, so if you love the look and feel, you’ll also find patterns for a coordinating scarf, hood and jumper, as well as some super-snuggly knee-highs!

You will need:

Novita Nordic Wool (100% wool, 50g/115m),
3 balls of Pomegranate (532)
1 ball of each:
Petrol (184)
Off White (010)
Rock (048)
A 2.5mm (US B/1 or C/2) hook

For the yarn, visit John Lewis stores or order from
