DIY Kit - Happy Mittens - Dream (Merino Worsted)
DIY Kit - Happy Mittens
These mittens are knit one at a time in the round, from cuff to top of hand. Stitches are placed on hold to work the thumb after the rest of the mitten is complete. The cuff of each mitten is worked with two strands of yarn held together, while the rest of the mittens are worked with single strands of yarn.
Dream is our new name for Merino Worsted yarn. Though the name is different and we have a new palette of color offerings, nothing else about Dream has changed: it is the same yarn you know and love!
