Keep your hands cozy with the Aida mitts! These sweet fingerless mitts are quick to knit and make great gifts for your crafty friends. The mitts are knit starting with the cuff, and then the thumb gusset is shaped. Stitches are put on hold for the thumb, and the top of the palm is knit with a band of stranded colorwork. After the body of the mitt is completed, the thumb stitches go back on the needles to finish the last part of the mitt.
