Inspired by underbrush on the Wild Pacific Trail, Brackthaw features a botanical motif emerging from the ice and a small allover design on the palm.

These mitts are worked in a tight gauge from cuff to tip, growing at the wrist to accommodate the base of the thumb, and finished by working the rest of the thumb.
