Moderate difficulty. I first designed the prototype of these mittens in the early 90’s because I wanted mittens of a particular color, but never really cared for traditional ribbing, nor did I like the feel of wool on my wrists. Winter is itchy enough without that. The lining of the cuffs is part silk for softness and I made the mittens long enough so you can tuck them up under your coat sleeves.
