A garden is a thing of beauty, and this one is a joy forever. Topiary Fingerless Mitts: where the trees are never harmed by winter, drought or neglect; where the leaves are always green and the jonquils are always in bloom. These mitts feature corrugated ribbing, purl ridges for textural contrast, a classic speckled trellis pattern, stockinette stripes, and a sweet topiary design.

Use Sport weight or a heavier Fingering weight yarn.
