Hands bend every which way!
So knit Around the Bend Mitts to fit.
A recipe for seamless mitts with only two ends on each mitt to weave in! Use plain or variegated yarn or stash bust to show off the structure. Pattern instructions are for DK weight yarn. Instructions also given on using other weight yarn or sizing up or down. The needle size may seem small, but I like a good thick mitten!
