Pattern notes:
I made this simple mitts a few years ago for a friend and he loved them. Since then, I have made two pairs for myself: both have been pinched by my teenage son! I’ve come to the conclusion that these mitts are made to be given away, so I’ve called them Friends.
These are quick and simple to make, look great in any DK weight yarn, and are sure to be loved and worn out. Make a pair for yourself, and be prepared for them to be pilfered!

These simple mitts are the perfect unisex accessory for the in-between seasons. They are worked in the round, in one piece.
