Mittens are a great one ball project and these mittens and hat are warm and fuzzy. Just what you need on a cold day to keep you feeling cozy! Make the mittens with or without the mohair yarn. Do your own stripes or let the sport weight sock yarn do the striping for you. Then use up the left-overs in a fun striped hat.
