Christmas isn’t just a time of year

it’s a feeling of warmth and friendship to carry with you always


Enjoy knitting these simple and plump cables, with crazy soft faux fur lining. The mittens feature a second cuff made from the faux fur that can be worn flipped under or over the ribbed cuff. They can also be worn tucked inside your sleeves.

The mittens are shown with conductive thread sewn into the fingertips so you can use your smart phone or tablet.
