Kristin Nicholas Designs Heart To Heart Mittens PDF
Knitting a pair of mittens decorated with a Fair Isle heart design, like these Heart To Heart Mittens from Kristin Nicholas Designs, shows your love for your recipient. There are two different mitten designs included in this pattern.

The more intricate Many Hearts Mitten design comes in 2 sizes, child's large and woman's large. Both of the designs have added embroidery for which clear, illustrated directions are included. Colorwork patterns are charted only.
