These are more like general instructions than a pattern but I hope you’ll like it.
They were Birthday gift for a boy that lives in U.S. and was just visiting Costa Rica, they can’t carry much stuff, so I thought this will be a good and light gift for the coming winter.
These are similar to other pair of cat mittens I saw in Ravelry, but are made different.
