Charlotte St. Mitts
There is nothing like a cozy pair of fingerless mitts to add a bit of comfort, especially when you’re on the go during transitional seasons. Another pattern named for a Peterborough, Ontario street, the Charlotte St. mitts are a necessary accessory! These will keep you comfortable around town in the chilly spring and fall, or warm your hands while typing at the keyboard indoors in winter. Featuring a delicate lace pattern along back of the hand, and a long, folded over ribbed cuff at the top.
