Warm hands, warm heart. The Meet Cute Mitts are cute enough to have a starring role in your gift knitting repertoire this year. These cuddly fingerless mitts use DK weight yarn for extra squish, and to help them knit up quickly. A panel of simple “antler” cable offers visual and knitting interest, and is easy to master even if cable knitting is a new skill for you. The Meet Cute Mitts pattern includes two sizes to help you cross multiple names off your list.
Here it is. That moment. Totally unexpected. A little awkward. Impossibly charming. However our couple meets, there’s going to be laughter and lots of eye contact. Blushing and probably a touch of stammering. Perhaps this mysterious stranger recently arrived in town to take over the local hardware store, or they could be related to the awful old grinch who is driving the plot forward. But it doesn’t matter right now. What matters is that sparks are flying, chemistry is simmering, and our love story has really begun.
