I moved to a rural area last year and instead of getting a car, got a bike. It’s been my transportation ever since and I’m completely hooked. I like the idea of high visibility clothing and gear to help keep me safe, but, since I’m usually headed to the grocery store or the bank on my bike, I don’t need to look like I’m riding the Tour de France. I’d rather add cute, fashionable accessories that may seem a bit loud, but are flattering and practical.

Spincycle Yarns’ color Pussywillow is perfect for these easy fingerless mitts. The variegated yarn works beautifully with the fun, textured stitch pattern, and makes a versatile, wearable mitt.
