These mittens are a great project to have in your repertoire for gift knitting or just for winter. The Easy Twisted Rib Mittens from Ewe Ewe, designed by Heather Walpole, are made with worsted weight yarn and come in three sizes.
You can make them color blocked as shown in the pattern, or knit them in a solid color or stripes. You could even make it a scrap project and change yarns every couple of rounds, or make a magic ball of your scraps to stitch from.
