A pair of hand-knit mittens should be the universal symbol for wintertime happiness and comfort. (It’s also an instant heirloom: How many an orphaned mitten is cherished long after losing its mate because someone’s nana knit it?)

If you can’t be there every minute of every day to offer a hug, this warm shawl is the next best thing. The simple pattern calls for a basic stockinette stitch; it’s just the kind of project you can work on while you relax and watch a movie at home.

If you're craving a creative project and some of the old-fashioned comfort that comes from starting something from scratch, you'll be well rewarded by reaching for your knitting needles this winter. These mittens  are straightforward to make (the stockinette stitch is king here), and the patterns are readily adaptable -- just alter the styles and sizes to suit the wearer. You'll enjoy the pleasure of knitting (and the guilty pleasure of not working) and the satisfaction of donning winter woollies you made yourself.
