This Christmas, I wanted to get my girlfriend something special. Something priceless, something you couldn't find in a store. I talk of course, of something hand made (specifically, by me). A good while back, I saw this idea briefly mentioned in an episode of Threadbanger, but had not seen an Instructable made on the topic. Thus, I present to thee the couple's mitten (or 'smitten') as it is sometimes called.

Step 1: About the Smitten

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but holding hands is so delightful. The smitten is essentially a mitten with room for 2 hands instead of 1 (and 2 sleeves instead of 1). It is intended such that couples can hold hands in the cold, and makes a rather cute gift for your significant other out there.
Great little design!!! Question, who has to carry it when not needed? :)
hehe, that's up to you (draw straws anyone?)
I understand that each of your reaches one hand into the smitten so that this is for a couple walking side-by-side. It would not be for four hands while sitting on bleachers. Is that correct?
Correct. For that 2 smittens (or some other design) would be necessary
