Warm Heart Mitts: Designed and knitted for Operation Social Justice

Warm Heart Mitts are a fun knit and a great stash buster. You can use all your leftover sock yarns to make a pair of colourful mitts. Knit either two of a kind or two different ones. They are worked in a blast and you will learn (if you don’t already know):

  • How to make jogIess joints when changing the colours at the end of the round.
  • How to bobble. The pattern explains how to make these cute bobbles right at the cuff. ??????

Warm Heart Mitts are designed for a cause

Not only the are sustainable because you can use up your leftovers, but they are designed to support Operations Social Justice which was initiated by Gamercrafting on Instagram. How? Why? To kill the trolls with kindness. To take a stand against hate, racism and ignorance. Social Justice is a good thing. It’s worth fighting for.

Or in Gamercrafting’s words: 

Social justice: the fight for equity in rights and opportunities. When did justice become something to malign and mock? Here at GamerCrafting Yarns, we think it’s important to fight for what’s right. It’s important to be kind, and it’s important to drown hate with love.

Nothing to add, except:

I will donate all the profit from the pattern to Arrival Room, a project space designed for migrants and locals in Saarbrücken. The aim is to bring people together through creativity and culture. So please purchase the pattern and knit you own, crazy version, use all the colours of the rainbow. And be kind! Check out the Hashtag #OperationSJW on Instagram for more kind projects and leave the people some love.

The pattern was tech edited by Frauke from Urban Yarning who already edited Sparkz and test knitted by a kind Ravelers and Instagrammers. You will find their projects tagged with #warmheartmitts.

These are rough times. Take care, stay healthy, stay safe and care for your neighbours. And make a donation to a charity if you can: It’s always the weak, the marginalized which are hit hardest! Sending you ?!
