This Building Blocks pattern is designed to be one of the only mittens patterns you’ll ever need! This pattern breaks down some of the intermediate-level techniques in order to make the knitting easy and enjoyable. The hope is that you not only learn something along the way, you end up with a fabulous pair - or pairs - as well!
Three versions are designed in order of difficulty:
Mitten A is a simple pair in stockinette stitch
Mitten B is worked in a classic broken ribbing
