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?)

The nubby ones here are made with an ingenious one-piece pattern that calls for the speedy garter stitch, so you could knit a pair for every family member.

Bespoke Touch

You can select as many as three colors for each pair of mittens (the main part, plus two accent shades for the crocheted closure). Choose a palette and then switch the colors around for different people within one family.
