There’s nothing warmer on a cold day than a pair of worsted colorwork mittens.  The double layer of yarn traps air and keeps fingers warm even on super-cold mornings.  My little love bug is 3 this year and is outside playing every day.  He needed something to keep those tiny fingers warm!  For this design, I combined traditional Scandinavian colorwork motifs with hearts for my love bug.
