These mittens, although very basic looking, are a fun twist on traditional construction as they are worked from the fingertips down using the magic loop method.

I chose to knit them in fingering weight handspun so I would have a nice pair of mittens for the fall that were cozy enough to combat the frosts but not too warm to wear while out for my daily run.
