These set are knitted same yarn but in different needle size, 4.0mm for Neckwarmer and 3.25mm for Mitts. Neckwarmer is knitted looser gauge to get softer fabric. On the other hand, mitts are knitted tighter gauge that makes nice fit for hands and avoids pilling problem. Mitts are knitted from hands up, so you can decide length of wrist part according to yardage of your yarn, or your taste by trying it on.
They are perfect for shorter sleeve cardigan or jacket. If you knit bright color, they will be nice contrast for darker color outfits in your closet.
