Product description

”I have a real soft spot for twisted stitches. With a sleight of hand, you can turn the simplicity of a knit stitch into something ornamental and three dimensional. In this design, the simple cabled motif on the back of the mittens gives them a special handcrafted feel. Holding two strands of Loft together will create a fabric with great elasticity and stitch definition.” – Michele Wang
