Easy and simple yet stylish and timeless mittens for everyday use. The smooth Stockinette fabric is the perfect canvas for all those pretty yarns that would get lost in busy patterns. The yardage is quite small, so you can afford knitting even with more luxurious yarns. Also a good project to use all those leftover yarns I’m sure everyone has…
