MIA (Made in America) mitts feature Kelbourne Woolens Germantown, a US-based brand. But if you have 200 yards of worsted-weight yarn, you're ready to make this gorgeous, giftable project!
The flip top caps are what make these mitts extra-special; you can text in cold weather and flip over the caps to keep your fingers warm when you're done.
A generous length ensures the mitts won't expose your wrists to the elements.
The pattern is intended for an adventurous beginner. Schematics and video tutorials are included.
