Product description

These classic colorwork mittens offer a great canvas for playing with color! We were drawn to a tone-on-tone combination of natural browns and greys, but brighter and more colorful combinations are also enticing. Although 4 colors are required for the pattern, you will only ever be working with 2 colors on any given round. Beginning with a ribbed hem, the mittens are worked circularly from the bottom up and feature a side-gore thumb.

Designer: Leila Raabe
