Point of Symmetry

In DK weight yarn, For the hands, Patterns, Shop sample available, Sport weight yarn by Shannon

These mitts actually have many points of symmetry — the two mitts are symmetrical to each other; the point at which you join the circumference is a point of symmetry; and the exact middle of the thumb gusset is a point of symmetry. This also means that the left mitt is the right mitt is the left mitt, which makes getting dressed much much easier.
