These basic bottom-up mitts begin with a fun little beaded “nugget” cuff!
This pattern is written with both a fingerless mitt and mitten option, which you make is up to you!
Wait until you see how fast and amusing they are to knit! These are great “first” mitts... so don’t be scared and jump right in!
Don’t want beads on your mitts? Easy, just don’t use them and knit those stitches instead!
There are still a few Nugget Mitts kits for this pattern through Lola’s Choice, but you can still purchase it as a pdf and gather your own supplies to make one. If you don’t want to miss out on future Lola’s Choice kits you should sign up!
