Designed for my friend John, who likes to spend a lot of time outside in the winter.
These mittens will knit up quickly - perfect for that last minute gift! A fuzzier yarn will make a warmer mitten, helping to trap air. If you don’t have any worsted on hand, you can hold together two strands of fingering weight.
The ridge pattern is from Barbara Walker’s A Treasury of Knitting Patterns Volume 1 - Quaker Ridging, page 15.
