A truly bad-ass pair of mittens. A stranded knit with bold graphic skeleton bones with brass knuckles. And cutesy hearts for a bit of balance of course. These mittens are an x-ray into your inner (or not so inner) wild side. With a tight ribbed cuff and knit in worsted weight wool, these mittens are warm and knit up quick.

Materials: Two balls of worsted weight yarn at least 100y long in two different colors. US 4 (3.5mm) double-pointed needles US 6 (4mm) double-pointed needles Yarn needle for weaving in the ends 1 foot of yarn in a contrasting color to duplicate stitch the hearts Contrasting scrap yarn to mark thumb placement
