A great pair of mittens is a must-have accessory for outdoor fun during the winter and these are super-quick to make in multiple sizes for every member of the family. Knit in worsted weight wool, the bold texture has universal appeal and is a snap to learn and execute. For a great beginner or portable project, knit a bunch as stocking stuffers and grab-bag items. They're the perfect gift for all the adults and kids on your list!
