These mittens are based on a pattern that appeared in several Russian books and magazines under a variety of designer names. I’ve changed it, by adding a tubular stitch edges, as I prefer the stockinette stitch look they have, as opposed to 1×1 ribbing. I’ve also added thumb gusset.
The mitts are knitted using tuck stitch pattern. It’s perfect for those of you who are like me – who love the simplicity of the stockinette stitch, but need a bit of variety to keep the boredom away.
