Warm Springs Bath Mitt
An excellent first project for experimenting with linen, this little bath mitt is lovely, practical, and simple to knit. Warm Springs is worked flat and finished tidily with a 3-needle bind-off. Easy garter and slip stitches create a perfectly scrubby texture, and eliminate the need to purl. Gift this luxurious mitt to a friend, or keep it to pamper yourself. The Quince & Co. Sparrow is a 100% organic linen that softens with each wash.
