Pattern description from Weekend Knitting: “Knitted in a loosely twisted, bulky merino yarn, these mittens are super-soft, warm, and comfortable. They are knitted completely in a Stockinette Stitch with a long cuff section that keeps them in place without the usual ribbing. The optional crocheted chain that links the two mittens to each other in a classic feature on children’s mittens, but is a surprise - I think a delightful and practical one - as shown here in an adult size.”
