With the first deep frosts of winter comes one of the rarest harvests in the world, as naturally frozen-on-the-vine grapes are swiftly cut, pressed, and vinted into sweet, delicious Icewine. For knitters, cold weather brings about that time of year to show off our winter-wear!
A sweet, heady blend of colour and pattern, these mittens feature an extra-long gauntlet and cuff with two-colour ribbing to fit snugly over coat-sleeves and help keep out the chill.
