Collect two colors of DK weight yarn to knit these graphic mittens. There are three sizes, each with a different circumference, and the length of each size is customizable. Begin with a ribbed cuff and continue into the easy-to-knit slip stitch pattern, which forms a bold zig zag motif. These mittens are quick to knit, making them perfect for gift giving or a special treat for yourself as you take long winter walks or bike rides.
