A pair of hand-knit mittens should be the universal symbol for wintertime happiness and comfort. (It’s also an instant heirloom: How many an orphaned mitten is cherished long after losing its mate because someone’s nana knit it?
Knitting mittens is a great way to spend a cold and rainy afternoon. These Wicked Knit Mittens, for example, are fun to make and show off! Combine whatever two colors you like, although the neon pinks and greens look great together!
Our classic hand-knit mittens cheer up chilly days, thanks to playfully mismatched color-block patterns. Buy at least two skeins of yarn in different but coordinating colors (two skeins are enough to make one pair of women's and one pair of kids' mittens), or use leftover yarn from your knitting basket. The mittens make sweet holiday gifts, so start now--and let your imagination dictate the design.
