A pair of pretty mitts featuring simple stitch patterns that follow the natural contours of the hand. The gusset is an integral part of the design and is worked with a single column of yarn overs that follow the curve of the lines on the palm. Two by two rib gives a snug fit and a little extra warmth around the wrist (I don’t know about you but my wrists are always colder than my hands!).Pdf pattern download
