Dive into colorwork with these great mittens! The cuff is done in a simple checkerboard pattern which is a great introduction to working with multiple colors in crochet. The single crochet in the back-loop only stitch construction worked in the round makes these stretchy enough for a wide range of hand sizes, and the pattern is easily adapted for smaller or larger hands, making these a great gift for the whole family.
