Added to cart
Take the most special red yarn you can find, wrap it with two kinds of lace, then tie it with a bow. These super-cozy mittens begin with luscious liners in Bare Naked Wools Festivus Worsted on a slightly-smaller-than-usual needle. Work the outer mittens with the same needle and a thinner yarn to create lace that allows the cranberry glow to shine through. Mittens are joined together with an i-cord bindoff before adding optional i-cord bows.
