Simple Mitts

KIMG0644_medium2.jpg

This is made from yarn I found in my local yarn shop, called flock, and I developed the pattern around the yarn. That’s how much I fell in love with it. Normally, I develop a pattern then go find yarn that fits it. This pattern is super easy, takes less than a skein, and a pair can be made in one night for the very dedicated knitter! Each skein is very different, so you’re going to get a different mitt every time!

You use smaller needles with this weight yarn, so the result is super squishy and warm.

YarnKureyon by Noro in any color-way, other other variegated worsted weight yarn.
