Mittens are not meant to be taken seriously, nor are they expected to be. Mittens to me are all about fun. But fun and functional can go hand in hand! Hodgepodge mittens are supposed to add a pop of color to your day, to bring a smile to your face when you put them on. The trio of colors allows oodles of customization and personalization possibilities to coordinate with your winter wear or to stand out from it. The deceptively simple colorwork makes it an easy knit. The longer than usual cuffs make it an extra warm accessory. Putting the fun back in function!

Notes The pattern on these mittens is quite easy to knit. Each row has a 4-stitch pattern for ease of repetition, making it so you don’t have to continuously refer to the charts. This makes the mittens knit up surprisingly fast.
