These mitts are the perfect unisex accessory for the in-between seasons. A companion piece to the Dry Stone Cowl, if you accidentally work the wrong number of a set of rows, don’t worry ~ your mitts will turn out fine, and will be unique. Just remember to make the same mistake twice!

Worked in the round, from the top down.
