Show off your Brooklyn pride and warm your hands with the Brooklyn Bridge Mitts, no matter what ‘hood you call home! These mitts feature traveling cables that mimic the arches of the Brooklyn Bridge, set on a reverse stockinette stitch background that transitions to stockinette after the cables are completed. A thumb gusset provides a comfortable fit and you can opt for individual finger holes or a completely fingerless treatment. With two lengths and two sizes to choose from, plus cute buttoned cuffs, you’ll be whipping up a perfect-for-you pair of mitts in no time!

(For my mama, the coolest native Brooklynite I know.)
