Pattern description from Stitch ‘n Bitch: “In my yarn stash, I had almost a full skein of Classic Elite Montera left over from a tote project, and I bought the GGH Esprit just because I liked the color. The two yarns were snuggling near each other, and I like the way the colors and textures looked together. Since I was using up leftovers, the project had to be small - hence, mittens. Note: You can wear these mittens with the cuff flipped up or down.”
