Option 1: Solid Color Mittens
50 grams of worsted weight yarn. Lighter or medium colors will work better than darker colors. Avoid varigated yarns.
Option 2: Two-colored mittens
25 grams of worsted weight yarn (darks or varigated are OK) - Color A
25 grams of worsted weight yarn in a light or medium solid - Color B
Set of double pointed needles to get a gauge of about 5-1/2 stitches per inch. (I used American size 4 or 3.5 mm).
Cable needle or extra double point needle
Waste yarn for marking thumb placement
A small amount of yarn in a contrasting color for adding embroidered detail.
