The Driftless Mitts Bulky are the 12-ply version of Driftless Mitts DK, and were named for the beautiful autumn colors abundant in the Driftless Region of Western Wisconsin.
These mitts are a super fast and easy yet rewarding project that would suit a person who is new to basic colorwork. They are knit from the bottom up, increasing to create the thumb, and following a simple color chart at the top.
Pattern is written in-the-round, with instructions on how to modify the pattern to knit flat, so if you are new to circulars or dpns no problem!
