The Family Heart Mittens are just simple stockinette mittens, but they have embroidery on the sides so that you can easily make a heart shape with your hands when you hold the together or alongside someone else’s hand.
You could use any mitten pattern you like and do this same thing, which would be a lovely gift for kids or to make a set for the whole family.
(If you’re looking for mittens for kids, check out my Kid’s Heart Mittens as well; they’re my daughter’s current mitts and she loves them!)
