These super quick mitts are thick and cozy and unisex. 7.5” and 8” palm circumference works equally for larger hands and ends up being cozy-chunky for smaller hands. Best of all?
They take virtually no time to make, they are about 30 rounds start to finish ( under 2 hours for a pair!) why not make some for everyone in your family? You can even knock out a pair in the car on the way to the holiday gathering at your aunt’s house. (unless your aunt lives across the street, of course) and, hey, just make sure someone else is driving, ok?

Use your thick and thin handspun or any commercial yarn that works up to 12 st per 4” (thick & thin or not) to make these super quick and cozy thick mitts.

Great for lumberjacking, driving on cold days or looking rugged while playing with your smart phone.
