My daughter can’t keep her hands out of these mittens. Be sure to note the size and cuff options, there are three of each. The Outsiders are knit in the round starting at the cuff which is great because you can try on the mittens as you knit. This means you can adjust the length of the thumb and hand for a custom fit.
Outer is such a treat! If you haven’t tried it yet, I hope you grab a skein and make up a fast pair of mittens. You will love it.
I hope you enjoy this quick to knit pattern. The Outsider Mittens make a perfect gift project. You’ll have your knitted gifts completed in a snap with this pattern.
