Definitely a pair of fraternal twins these mittens are as sunny as a summer’s day even in the middle of winter. Worked with a self-striping yarn and a simple slip stitch pattern they appear more complicated than they really are. To keep out the winter chill they have a double cuff that is knit in without seaming. Sized from 2 years to Adult extra large you can make a pair for everyone in the family!
