These mittens are simple and quick to make. The corrugated rib gives visual interest and can use up leftover yarn. Instruction for the corrugated rib are given using slipped stitches, so only one color yarn is carried at a time. This is great for knitters with no experience in stranding multiple yarns.

An actual-size schematic is included so that you can check your size before knitting by simply laying your hand on top of it.

Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
