We've found this gorgeous mitts pattern by Alice Sleight in Pom Pom Magazine.
Apparently, the Homeward Bound mitts take inspiration from a British postage stamp called ‘The Station’, adorned with cables mimicking the crossing paths of railway tracks. Ideal for that final train ride home this winter, keeping you warm on a cold station platform for the last commute.
Don't forget to use our Wool Wash Bar to keep them in perfect condition.
Sizes: 1 (2, 3)
Finished hand circumference (unstretched): 16 (18, 19.5) cm / 6¼ (7, 7½)” – to be worn with 2-5 cm / 1- 2” negative ease. Model wears size 1.

Pompom say; "These mitts are knitted in the round from the wrist up, using a combination of twisted rib and cable textures. The body of the mitt is knitted in one piece with stitches held for an afterthought thumb. Thumb stitches are picked up and worked after the body is complete. To select your size, measure around the hand between the knuckles and thumb.
Please note there are two versions of chart B which will be worked over the palm of the hand. Please ensure to select the correct chart for your size before beginning."
Kit; 1 hank of chosen Winterburn DK shade and a digital copy of the pattern will be emailed to you.
