These retro vintage mitts in three sizes (S/M/L) will help you welcome autumn weather with an enthusiastic attitude. The easy to work, two-color pattern creates a dense but lightweight fabric that can be worn indoors or out. Use any arrangement of brightly contrasting shades for a fun pop of color or a neutral combination for a more subtle effect. In a slightly more substantial yarn, this is a quick knitting project that results in a soft, comfy layer that hands will appreciate for driving, biking, and attending fall spectator sports.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.

Mitts are shown in size M, knit in Ginny Sport color Texas and Yarn Hollow Umpqua, colorway Faded High Tops.
