Cozy and sweet!
These pretty mitts knit up in no time using your favorite sport weight yarn. A rustic wool like Nature Spun Sport by Brown Sheep gives warmth for those chilly fall mornings, while the simple & elegant lace keeps them from becoming too hot throughout the day.

You will need to be able to knit in the round to make these mitts- I prefer using the Magic Loop technique, but you can easily use DPNs if you like! These mitts fit a ladies size small, but do have a good amount of stretch to them. You can add in more pattern repeats if you need to make them bigger (the pattern repeat is 6 sts).
