Riselay Mittens

The Ad-free PDF version can be purchased on Etsy HERE or on Ravelry HERE. Includes sizes small, medium and large.

Simple, elegant mittens, a staple item for your winter outerwear. These mittens are knit with 100% wool, making them perfect to keep your hands warm in the cold weather.

Even though these mittens are knit with worsted weight yarn, they knit up quickly. Making them the perfect knitting project for a weekend.

For this mitten pattern I used Briggs & Little Regal yarn in the colour Fundy Fog
