Elegant yet edgy… Victorian but still kinda punk…

Corseted Mitts are a stylish and versatile answer to the first
chilly days of fall. Seamlessly knit in the round from worsted
to aran weight yarn, they are finished and ready to wear
before you know it. Pattern is simple enough for a beginner
and offers two sizes to fit most any hands. Written and charted instructions are provided as well as detailed help with finishing.
