A quick Knit Mitten Pattern for everyone in your family!

Mittens are one of those things that always seem to disappear. With the first fresh breath of spring, I carefully pack up all the winter coats, boots, and mittens only to find in the fall that somehow half of the mittens have gone missing! You can always tell that those first few bitter weeks of winter have snuck up on me again because my whole family is wearing a mish mash of whatever mitten stragglers I could find in the bottom of the basket. It doesn’t seem to matter how many members your family has, there never seems to be enough mittens. Children go out to play and come back in rosy cheeked with sopping wet mittens, only to want to go back out an hour later. Like socks, you can never have enough warm, dry mittens.

5 sizes from child S to Mens L, so there is a size perfect for everyone in your family!
