This design was initially planned as a “man mitten”, and it is a great design for men. But many women have liked it for themselves as well, and it comes in a range of sizes that will accommodate both men and women. Right and left mittens are mirror images of each other, and the palm has it’s own pattern. The thumb has a gusset and is located slightly onto the palm of the hand, making for an excellent fit, and causing no distortion of the pattern when worn. Three sizes are included, all calling for the same gauge and yarn. There are six charts, one for each of three sizes in both left and right. These will fit a range of sizes including most adults and older children, and look great on both men and women.
