This pattern includes a second PDF version that is formatted for knitters with low vision. It has black text, size 22 or larger text in a sans serif font, no italics, no columns, and fully-written directions. The chart is still included but is not needed to work the pattern. Many thanks to Gemma Thompson (gemmabelle here on Rav) and the Accessible Patterns group for their guidance in formatting patterns in a more accessible way.

These lightweight mitts are intended to be companions for the Madeleine Hat, and depending on the size you make of each, you will probably have enough yarn in a single skein of sock-weight yarn to make both the hat and the mitts. It’s a great way to show off a special skein of yarn and make sure you use up as much as possible.
