I knit my mittens using the magic loop method, but DPNs works as well, or a short circular needle if that is what you prefer.
Please make sure not to leave too long floats at the back of your work. I usually twist the yarn every 3 stitches.’
Oh, and if you publish pictures of your mittens on any social platforms it would be really cool if you used the hashtag #BlueIsForScienceMittens. But only if you want to, of course.
