Fido Mitts were made for dog walking! The mitten tops fold back to reveal fingerless mitts, perfect for when you need to open a plastic doggie baggie and pick up. But what if you’re not near a bag? Fear not! There is a hidden pocket on the inside of the wrist that holds 3-4 folded bags, so you’re always prepared.

The double layer cuffs provide a comfortable stockinette fabric against the wrist and the textured rib pattern on the outside. The fold over mitten tops maintain the ribbing pattern throughout. The textured ribbing pattern helps to provide negative ease for a good fit.

Instructions INCLUDE fingerless mitts, fold over mitten tops and hidden doggie bag pocket.

Optional directions are listed for:
Making the mitts without hidden doggie bag pocket.
