These mitts are my go-to mitts. I've made countless pairs of them for myself and as gifts. They work up beautiful in a wide variety of yarns. After making these mitts, I had plenty of yarn leftover, so I made a matching hat.
The pattern is written to be worked back and forth in rows—because I find the brioche stitch pattern is more fun to work back and forth, than in the round. But I've included alteration instructions for how to work the pattern in the round for those who would prefer it.
