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.
