This is the easiest pattern given to me by one of my friends, Kris. She found the pattern online – find the blog here Last Christmas, we knit these mittens for both of our daughters.

Here are the pictures of the pair of mittens I made recently for one of my friend’s daughter’s birthday. If you want to make a quick gift, this pattern is perfect.

It’s much easier to complete projects. Also, I’ve found that using magic loops keeps items like socks and mittens at the same length, unlike DPN.
