j o v i a l mittens is a pattern for a pair of mittens with an elegant twist and fine, special details such as the pretty picot edges, smooth double-knit around the wrist and a discreet double-centered fold along the thumb.
At the same time, the pattern is created in such a way that you get to measure the best length for you along the way, so that the mittens sit exactly as they should on your hands.
This is also a great residual yarn project, and you won’t need much more than 50-125 g of yarn, depending on your chosen size.
In the pattern you will find links to videos (in danish). The help videos are created specifically for j o v i n a l mittens.

Length, from your wrist to the top of your middle finger: you will be prompted to try the mitts on as you knit, so they are perfectly fitted to your hands. I have written all the instructions for perfect sizing along the way.
