What better way to warm up your hands this Winter than with a pair of fun furry smitten animal mittens! What type of animal are these mittens you ask? The choice is up to you! Cat, owl, bird, or bear, all that matters is that when it comes to keeping you warm, indeed they care 🙂 “Smitten Mittens” are knit with super bulky yarn for unmatched warmth, and feature a detachable top for your fingerless needs. Guaranteed to make onlookers smile and an excellent present, these mittens were designed to brighten up your Winter and make it more pleasant!
All pieces are knit using double-pointed needles. These cute little characters were intended to be an Owl and a Cat, but could be many animals, I look forward to seeing what creative ideas you come up with! They make fun puppets too!
