Warm the hands and warm the heart of loved ones, with a gift of hand knit mittens! Large print, easy directions to get you started, even if you have never made mittens before. Clever designs for adults and children. Use medium weight yarns, US size 7 needles, or bulky weight yarn and US size 10 needles for hand warmers. Worked on double pointed needles, but good basic beginner guide along with how to's for sizing, and a "slingshot" cast on method.
