Grá means love in Irish and these mitts have been named after my dear friend Gràinne who loves knitting just as much as I do!

Designed with a long cuff rib, textured basket weave stitch pattern and a little gentle thumb shaping. These fingerless mitts will keep your hands warm when the temperature is a little cooler.
