Last year I made a ton of mittens for family as Christmas gifts, I wanted a pair of my own but couldn’t bare to make one more pair. This year, now that the sun is setting earlier and a chill is in the air, I am ready. I was really happy with the Frances Mittens that I designed last year so these are based on the same design concept, simple mittens that have a pop-top. Oh, did I mention they have to be red? If you are familiar with the children’s book “Red is Best” then you’ll know why.
