The second pair of handknitted mittens from the softest yarn I have yet seen and had the pleasure to knit wit. It is called Opus 1 from Atelier Zitron. It has Aloe Vera and Jojoba in it. Very, very soft so it makes these mittens extremely comfortable to wear. The warm and rich brown colors makes naming the mittens easy. Autumn. Their simple shape reminds me of the time when I was young. I think it is all coming back again.

I like the fact that they are not exactly the same but that you can see they are knitted from the same skein. The mittens are about 24 cm. long. They will fit a small to medium sized hand. Made the pattern up myself.

Knitted in the round so there are no seams. Used the Elisabeth Zimmermann method for the thumb. That is: put some st. on a piece of contrasting thread. Knit like nothing has happened and finish the mitten. Pick up these st. and make the thumb like a mini mitten.
