...keeping warm...


As promised


Warm and cozy mittens or fingerless mitts that are quick to knit up. 



The cuffs are long enough to fit inside or outside of a jacket or sweater sleeve.  Which ever you prefer, your hands will thank you for this bit of coziness while you’re out in the chilly air!


The fingerless version is perfect to put on when you need a little warmth but want your fingers free.  Perfect for when you are texting or taking photos!

Cuffed with a beautiful cabled band that is finished with a smart decrease and buttonhole, they are the perfect project to show off those special buttons you might have in your collection.

    Beautiful! I've been meaning to ask, do you think these mittens and the hat would work well with worsted weight yarn, or do you think the fabric would be too thick?
