Originally designed as a charity knit, I loved these cozy mittens so much I had to share them with you! As a guild project, every year we knit mittens for an inner-city kindergarten class in the Bronx, NY. The teacher, Annie is the daughter of one of our members and we always refer to the project as Annie’s Mittens.
The yarn is held double for these mittens which makes them a quick knit even though you’re using a sock-weight yarn. Have some fun and play with the pattern repeat in the self-patterning yarn. Try to get the striping to match up or mix it up on purpose. Both look great.
Yarn 65 (90, 120, 145, 180) yds [60 (80, 110, 135, 165) m] solid 4-ply yarn (MC) 85 (130, 190, 225, 290) yds [80 (120, 175, 210, 265) m] self-patterning sock yarn (CC)
