Need to quickly knit a last-minute gift for adults or children? This is the perfect pattern. Worked in the round in a super bulky weight merino wool, these mittens are quick and easy, not to mention warm and soft. The cuff is ribbed and the hand and thumb are shaped at the top with decreases for a snug fit. The side thumb gusset allows each mitten to be worn on either hand. The hardest part of this project? Choosing a colour!
