These sassy mittens are slim and and come in two sizes. The thumb, like the wrist, is ribbed to ensure a good fit. The design is very simple stranded knitting—use your favorite method, or try a new one. Both mittens are worked the same and can be worn on either hand. Don’t you just love a little retro vibe? So cheerful, that you’ll be happy, even when the weather is wicked cold.
