Goody, goody gumdrops – the polka dots on these cozy mittens are such fun. Go crazy with colour here and knit every row of gumdrops a different color, or be subtle with tone on tone. There is a size for everyone: babies to grandpas. Instructions for both traditional mittens and fingerless gloves are included.

Main colour is worsted weight. Contrasting coloured dots are worked with a double strand of DK weight which may be substituted with worsted weight.

Skills required: nitting in the round, decreases, slip stitches, drop stitches, using a yarn placeholder

Gauge: 16 sts and 24 rows = 4" / 10 cm in stockinette stitch
