Arms Akimbo Mitts

In Fingering weight yarn, For the hands, One skein projects, Patterns, Shop sample available by Shannon

Wear these mitts all fall and winter long – they’ll keep your non-knitting parts good and toasty. Chevrons are a great way to add visual interest to the long color repeats of this yarn, and my favorite I-cord bind-off is featured at the top of the mitt.
