Fred+Ginger Flip-Tops are a fun and quick project which integrate many of the design features of the Fred+Ginger Cardigan. These mittens are worked with a tidy knit-in hem, twisted ribbing, seamlessly picked up flip-tops and an innovative integrated button loop. The ruffed edging can be worked in a coordinating or contrasting colour. Great for those small amounts of leftover lace yarns!
