I made these handwarmers as a Christmas gift for our daughter Amanda (another of JBW's Beans!) The pattern was free from Classic Elite. I used leftover Manos Silk Blend in color 3055 Olive, and used less than 1 hank. The pattern calls for US 4 dpns, but I used size US 2 dpns (Crystal Palace) to achieve the correct gauge. The funnest part was seeing the progression of the twisted stitches in the ribbing carry through to the twisted stitches in the body of the mitt, and out again at the fingers.
