Slight errata: repeat decreasing rows at the top of the mitten until 12 stitches remain, not 11.
This is the story of miss Betsy Pitts who searched long and hard for the perfect mitts. She looked through books and websites and magazines too, but all of the patterns she found wouldn’t do. She told a friend of her terrible plight and how she’d never have mittens that were right. Britt listened to Betsy’s description with care then bought some yarn and without a moment to spare she knit and she knit and she knit and she knit until she had completed the perfect mitts and they all lived happily ever after.
