These mittens are based on a pattern that appeared in several Russian books and magazines under a variety of designer names. I've changed it, by adding a tubular stitch edges, as I prefer the stockinette stitch look they have, as opposed to 1x1 ribbing. I've also added thumb gusset. The mitts are knitted using tuck stitch pattern. It's perfect for those of you who are like me - who love the simplicity of the stockinette stitch, but need a bit of variety to keep the boredom away. These mitts are great by themselves or over simple black gloves.

I have been knitting and crocheting since being a child. Very early I started tweaking the patterns or improvising, but it's only in the past few years that I started feeling I have something to share with the rest of the knitting and crocheting community.
