Revised pattern with errata posted December 13, 2011; I corrected one row in the top section of the mitts and deleted some extraneous crap at the end of the mitt section. SORRY!

Make these one-skein tailored, welted mitts in just a couple of nights! Named for my beloved Aunt Dixie who wanted a pair of non-froo-froo fingerless gloves, these easy-to-knit mitts work up very quickly and make a perfect gift. Best of all, the pattern is FREE!

The cuff features welts and cool buttons of your choosing. I found the Victoria glass buttons on Etsy, the best button resource on the web.

The pattern also includes instructions for the bright and beautiful pink and green mitts which features a unique striped welt and cute flower buttons.
