Snowflake Reversible Mittens

Snowflake Reversible Mittens

“Snowflake Reversible Mittens” by Susan Todhunter


Reversible gloves (the inside is a solid  textured pattern) are  versatile and really warm. They are knit in one piece and then tucked one inside the other. Designer Susan Todhunter was inspired by her Framingham, Massachusetts winters.


From Beth:

I have such happy memories of making snowmen with my sister Rory and Aunt Cookie at our early childhood home in Chicago. I can’t explain it, but slipping on a pair of mittens, rather than my grown-up gloves, instantly takes me back to the delight of playing in the snow, so bundled up I resembled the Stay Puft marshmallow man.

Massachusetts designer Susan Todhunter does her best to keep your hands warm and undeniably stylish on cold winter days with these double-thick reversible mittens. The construction technique is a gift for the knitter — no sewing up.
