This pattern was born out of necessity. All of the patterns that I could find for men’s mittens were lacking in some way. I didn’t like the shaping of the thumb and top of the hand in one; I hated the gusset in another; a third was at just absolutely the wrong gauge. These are a hybrid of all the mitten patterns I’ve seen - the only real difference is that it’s free!

NOTE: These mittens took almost exactly 1 skein of Wool-Ease Heathers (70g; 162yd). If you have the same yardage per skein and want to use just one skein, you’ll have to frog your gauge swatch.
