I never understood mitts… till I wore a pair. How can something that’s open on the end keep my hands so warm? If you’re like me, you’re busy and need your hands at all times… and you also don’t have a lot of spare time to knit. Fortunately, these DK mitts with an intuitive slipped-stitch pattern will be a snap to work up in your off hours.
