Don't Panic Gift Series - Glittens! Are they mittens or gloves?



Glittens! Also known as convertible mitts make a great gift knit.  These mitts are unisex and sized to fit hands that are 6 ¾” , 8”, or 9” circumference. The design is very basic without any fussy details making it a great gift for anyone with cold hands. The mitts are made from heavy worsted or  Aran weight yarn, making them a fast knit even using smaller needles which will give you  a dense knit for warmth. You can use DPNs or magic loop for the body of the mitts.  Once transitioned to the fingers DPNs are necessary. If you wish you will learn to do 2 mitts at a time using magic loop for the body of the mitts.
