These quick to knit mittens are lots of fun to work—just the motivation you need when a gifting deadline is on the horizon. Constructed in the round from the bottom up in simple stitches on DPNs, they feature a fitted gusset to ensure a snug, seamless fit. The pattern includes three sizes (S/M/L) to knit in worsted weight yarn and may be customized by adjusting needle size up or down. They are easily lengthened or shortened as well and may be felted slightly to achieve a warmer fabric if desired—just what’s needed for a long day of outdoor winter activity. Hold the hands you love best by knitting up a cozy pair.
