Pattern Description:

Manchester Mitts are basic, all purpose, unisex handwarmers featuring a gusseted thumb and extra-long ribbing at the fingers.

These handwarmers knit up fast, are available in three sizes, and stretch to fit a variety of hands, making them the perfect last minute gift!

Manchester Mitts are the perfect thing for a little extra warmth while typing, reading, playing guitar, in your car, or on brisk days in fall and early Spring. If you are lucky enough to live in a milder climate, wear these through the winter as your go-to accessory for a little extra warmth.

These mitts where made to match my Manchester Mitts pattern for American Girl Dolls and Manchester Mitts for Adults. Knit matching "Dolly and Me" or "Mommy and Me" sets!
