Knitting pattern: Slip Stitch Flip Tops

The stitch pattern of these mittens immitates a checkered pattern using slipped stitches, which makes them very soft and warm. The Flip-Tops let you easily grab your keys or look for change without having to take off the mitts in the cold. So they are the perfect winter accessory.

These mittens go great with the Slip Stitch Scarf as they feature the same stitch pattern.
