Designed to go with the Backroad Hats and the Backroad Scarves, the Backroad Mittens use the same stretchy slip-stitch rib, and are designed for worsted weight yarn. The mittens are worked in the round from the cuff, with a thumb gusset at the side; the gusset instructions are both written and charted. The mitten body is finished with a 3-needle bind off. The recommended yarn is a springy, 3-ply wool yarn with a relatively tight twist: soft and lofty yet durable. It is available through Mooncat Fibers in Taos, NM (575-758-9341).

In addition to needles and yarn, you will need three stitch markers, scrap yarn for holding the thumb stitches and a yarn needle for darning in ends.
