I had seen this design at a couple of wool festivals, as a ready-made item. I have recreated it for myself using "Brown Sheep Naturespun". This is my second pair of mitts, so far. I have already cast on for pair #3 with plans for several more. I wore these to work this week to see if anyone else liked the idea as much as I do, and I think they will be the "santa gift" for co-workers this year.
