Checkerboard Mitts

Checkerboard Mitts is an easy and quick to knit pattern that looks harder than it is. A simple combination of increases and decreases create the wavy checkerboard cuff while the ribbed pattern on the hand ensures a good fit for a wide range of sizes. Two skeins of yarn will make two pair of mitts in alternating colors.
