If you purchase 5 of my self-published designs at the same time (they need to be in the same cart), you will get the least expensive for free!

Tuck your hands into these toasty mitts for the ultimate in stylish warmth. Worked in a two-color brioche “tuck stitch”, they are stretchy and beautifully form fitting, while the speckled gradient contrast yarn fades to pale and practically shoots off sparks of electrifying color.

The last photo shows WS and since I put the right mitt on my LH and vice versa, you can also see how “visible” the change in yarn color is ;)
