Simplest Mitts

Pattern: Improvised but I'm sure there are hundreds like this on Ravelry
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Verde Adriana and Paris Night
Needles: US7 Addi Turbos
Notes: I was wearing my Prairie Mitts at the shop last weekend and a customer said I should write up the pattern and teach a class on it. I don't know if I'll do that but I did think these would be great, fast holiday gifts so I whipped up two pairs in the last few days. I kept them short because I was working with leftovers and only had about 40-45 grams of each color. They are just garter stitch with a basic buttonhole for the thumb. If I had been a more diligent knitter I would have gotten out Knitter's Almanac and done a proper One Row Buttonhole.
