School mittens need to be warm, washable and quick to knit. These mittens are knit using three strands of superwash sock yarn containing wool and nylon. Because the three strands are not spun together they make a very warm cushy mitt that is machine washable and dryable. Since each medium child’s mitten takes only 3x10 gm or so of sock yarn, this pattern is ideal for using up those pesky sock yarn leftovers (or that “what was I thinking!” ball of random sock yarn).

All money received from this pattern will be donated to school breakfast programs in Calgary.
