Traditional Mittens

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.
