This handsome, multi-sized pair of mittens is the perfect way to tell someone you like them; knit in worsted weight wool, the bold texture is both appealing and a snap to learn. Super-quick and portable, you’ll want to knit a bunch for stocking stuffers, grab-bags, or valentines. Better yet, make it a set by pairing these mittens with the matching Snow Tire Scarf.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
