Acorn Oven Mitt Pattern

Ever burn the back of the wrist when taking hot baking dishes from the oven? Oven Mitts will prevent it, for they cover to the wrist and protect both sides of the hand—may be slipped off easily if hot liquids spill on them.

You'll say "they're the nuts," • with a pair of these oven mitts • designed to protect the hands from hot pans and baking dishes when removing from the oven • slip on like a mitten.
