Outdoor pursuits demand free fingers, so I love fingerless mitts for keeping me cozy and capable. These mitts combine a durable waffle-stitch pattern with a lush merino wool/cashmere/nylon-blend yarn for the ideal combination of practical luxury. Delicate cables are placed on the outside of each hand; a gusseted thumb makes for a comfortable, attractive fit.
To fit a hand circumference of 6–7 (7–8)” (15–18 18–20.5 cm), mitts measure about 51⁄2 (61⁄4)” (14 16 cm) in circumference and 61⁄2 (71⁄2)” (16.5 19 cm) long.
