Handspun yarn often comes in a single hank—one of a kind, and just waiting to be made into a small treasure. These Wabi-Sabi Mitts were designed for a single hank of handspun yarn. The model mitts use approximately 94 yards, but the pattern is written so more or less could be used.

The single hank of handspun yarn is wound into a center pull ball, then both mitts are cast on at the same time—each from opposite ends of the ball. Both mitts are worked at the same time, until only enough yarn to bind off both mitts remains.
