Palace Mittens

Even now, in mid-December, it's not too late to create handmade holiday presents IF you knit or crochet something small and IF you use bulky yarn for speed of completion. These luxurious mittens, worked flat and seamed will work up quickly in tweedy Palace – or in undyed Chalet or colorful Chateau.
