The Shiny Mittens pattern combines the basic elements of twisted stitch rib alternated with stockinette stitch to turn the simple into elegant. Just the right pattern to showcase luxury yarns and to brighten up a winter day. The low yardage helps keep the cost of the project reasonable no matter how decadent the yarn. Named Shiny because they are but also because it reminds me of one of my all time favorite shows.
