Our top 10 favourite mittens

It’s time to add the last cold-weather accessory to your outfits, mittens. Although this may seem inconvenient, it doesn’t necessarily have to be. You can’t use the touchpad on your phone or apply your lip gloss, however worse than that is having cold hands. It’s important that the mittens you do have are made out of good materials so they will keep your hands warm, and trap the warm air in there. A lot of the mittens out there are made from poor materials that might actually not be doing their job, therefore knitting your own seems like a viable option. Not only are they better quality, they’re also smaller projects that you can knit with leftover yarn. Therefore, it shouldn’t actually take too long and they’re also perfect Christmas gifts for those friends or family members that are impossible to buy for. You can choose a pattern that suits you and your style, so rather than them being an inconvenience they’ll be a trendy accessory that adds a little something extra to your outfit.
