These mittens were inspired by vintage Russian embroidery. These traditionally shaped mittens feature a modern thumb for added comfort and durability.

You’ll need less than one skein of each color to finish this project.
Materials:
White - 170 yards / 156 meters
Black - 100 yards / 92 meters
Red - 90 yards / 83 meters

I would suggest knitting this project inside out, which helps keep the tension more even with three colors in each round. Knit this in the suggested colors for a classic look or mix it up with your own colors for a fun twist.

Update: Matching hat is now available!
