Super easy and simple mittens. The Malabrigo yarn chosen for this pattern is beautifully colored and there are no need for anything more than simple stockinette stitch. But both colorwork and lace pattern can be added to the design, if you like.
The pattern is made in one size for women, but can easily be adapted to somewhat smaller or bigger size by changing needles.
The pattern contains both a general pattern and an alternative pattern with provisional cast on. The provisional cast on is a good technique to use if you don’t know if you have enough yarn – typically when you use scrap yarn.
I use city names for some of my designs, and normally the name will indicate that the design or garmend is made or worn in the city that named it.
