Keep those kiddo hands toasty warm (and yours too!) with these chunky squishy mittens. The Broadside Mittens feature three stitch patterns: a garter cuff, reverse stockinette stitch body, and a purl ridge stitch pattern on the front. They are perfect for those hand-dyed semi-solid skeins of super bulky like Dragonfly Fibers’ Super Traveller.
