These mitts will warm both your heart and your hands. The luxurious wool blend knit up in form-fitting rib caresses the skin, while a cable and bobble motif graces the back of the hand. Ordinary thumb increases worked in a not-so-ordinary place create pleasing lines and make these mitts uniquely special.
