Perfect for the chilly weather, these easy (and fast!) striped mitts are sure to become a staple winter accessory. They are knit flat and seamed, and use small amounts of yarn. With the materials below, you’ll have enough yarn to make a pair for you and 4 of your closest friends! A perfect holiday gift. Have fun choosing different colors, or knit them in classic neutrals, like this warm white and soft grey.

As written, pattern is suitable for wrist circumference of 6 - 7.5 inches. To change size, decrease stitch count or increase stitch count by 4 to accommodate different sizes.

Gauge:
18 stitches and 28 rows in a 4 inch square of stockinette. Take time to check gauge or your mitts might turn out too small or too big!
