Doric mitts combine any colorway with clever knitting tricks to make mitts for the whole family. Doric columns are the simple ones and sometimes simple is best! In these mitts the simple lines allow the malabrigo colorways to shine through.

Construction notes
Reverse stockinette with columns of twisted stitches make these mitts simple to knit and allow the silky merino yarn and fabulous colorways to show off.
