These simple stockinette mitts, accented with reverse stockinette welts, feature an Eastern Thumb style that appears to grow out of the wrist. Subtle arm shaping makes for a great fit, and the DK weight yarn makes it a quick knit.

weight yarn. Shown in Anzula Cricket (80% superwash merino wool/10% cashmere/10% nylon, approx 250 yds (228m)/115 g) in ‘Iris’.
Needle: 3.5mm (US 4) needle(s), or size needed to obtain gauge, in your preferred method for small circumference knitting (dpns, two circulars, or magic loop).
