A marine layer is an air mass that forms over the surface of a large body of water which often creates fog within itself. These mitts are part of a quick to knit coordinating set, inspired by this weather pattern.

Using twisted rib and two complementary colors in “singles” yarn to imitate layers forming over water and fog enclosing fog, these accessories combine visual appeal and textural interest with coziness and warmth. Perfect for fall knitting!
