dot mittens / Dawn Catanzaro

These ultra–cozy mittens in our chunky single-ply Puffin, sized from child to large adult, are adorable and a fun way to incorporate a little bit of color by way of a relaxed two-color seed stitch. The clever two-color increases at the thumb gusset make them practically invisible. Make a super cute winter accessory set by also knitting the Dot hat.
