I love coffee. That’s pretty much the whole inspiration behind these mittens. Coffee. Glorious, wondrous, delightful coffee. Knit up in wool with a touch of cashmere, these mittens are delicious and warm. Just like a good cup of Joe! Although there are three colors in the mitten design, each individual row only uses two of the colors at a time; making the knitting of this mitt much easier, but giving a spectacular result.
