These are the mitts I pull on when hiking in the woods up north, or knitting in front of the fire at our cabin. Just enough cozy while keeping your fingers free to get the job done!

These mitts are a fun exploration into stranded colorwork! Utilizing a fun arrow motif, they are a great stashbuster. I knit these inside out to help control my floats and loved the result. There is a video link in the notes of the pattern if you would like to try it too!
