I have to admit that this pattern is brilliant for using up leftover yarn scraps from other projects! These mitts are just so cute and cozy, no one would ever guess how simple the pattern is. I am definitely going to knit of several pairs of these to use as stocking stuffers at Christmas time. I think I will also use up some of my leftovers to make this for a local school that needs extra mitts for their students. I would recommend that you give this pattern a go. Its really nice.

What a clever pattern for those tiny leftovers of superbulky yarn! I can't wait to get these on my needles and clean that basket of scraps out of my closet!

I love stash buster projects, and since this one knits up so fast with leftover bulky yarn it's great for gifts or charity knitting. Everyone can use another pair of mittens.

I agree. Although gloves are nice, on some really cold days you just need mittens. I usually keep a pair stashed in my coat pocket and like to have another pair ready for when that pair goes into the wash. Mittens are a great project the work up quickly, and good for beginner knitters too.
