Aqueduct Puff Stitch Mittens

The Aqueduct Puff Stitch Mittens are here! The cuff is worked in rows, then the mittens are worked in rounds from the cuff to the top, with an “afterthought” thumb in single crochet. Suitable for the advanced beginner, they are quick to stitch up in an Aran weight yarn and will keep you warm and toasty in the winter months.
