Rathcooney Fingerless Mittens
The elegant cocoon stitch flows organically into the ribbing for these fingerless mitts. The soft and luxurious Hedgehog Fibres “Silk Merino Singles” makes these mitts a pleasure to knit and to wear. The thickness of the knitted fabric makes the mitts wonderful for colder weather.
