Yarn: You will need about 25g of two colors, a Main Color (MC) and a Contrast Color (CC).

Substitute sport or worsted-weight yarn, in any fiber content, and needles accordingly, for bigger or smaller pair of mitts.

Gauge: 6 stitches and 10 rows = 1 inch
Needles: US 4 - 3.50mm , or size to get gauge.
Measures: 6.5 - 7” circumference at palm, 8 - 9 “ length.
Size: One size to fit womens medium / mens small. For smaller mitts, use finer yarn and smaller needles to get 6.5-7 sts = 1”. For larger, use thicker yarn and larger needles to get 5-5.5 sts = 1”.
