These mittens hold dear memories of my grandmother. She was a midwife with the softest hands, always having time to teach, showcase, and embrace. It was my grandmother who taught me how to knit, and her mittens always had this two-colored pattern.

You begin at the fingers and knit your way up with one strand of each quality. Here, you get to try the Turkish cast-on, i-cord, and magic loop.
