Winter calls for warm & snuggly knits. You can be bundled from your head to your toes, but it’s not always practical to cover your frosty finger- tips. Bah hum-bug! That’s why these convertible fingerless mitts are the perfect knit for the chilly seasons, for the times when you absolutely need to expose your fingers-tips, and for the times when you can just leave your fingers bundled under the warm woolen mitten flaps.
