Embrace Me Mitts were originally created for the Winter 2015-2016 Shalimar Yarns Indulge Me! Club, and feature an exclusive, embraceable color of Breathless Cush yarn. For more information about Shalimar Yarns, check out the Shalimar Yarns Ravelry group.

Luxurious bulky yarn and a subtle Crossover Twist stitch pattern make these fingerless mitts special. Written in two sizes, they feature an atypical thumb gusset which creates a natural fit that is both comfortable and elegant.
