Notes: Carimbo are warm but breathable mitts, perfect for the transitory seasons of Spring and Autumn. The mitts are knit in the round from the bottom up with the thumb stitches held and picked up at the end. The body of the mitts uses two diferent colourwork patterns worked in two contrasting colours: an allover speckled pattern on the palm and a series of vertical stripes on the back of the hand. The ribbing is worked in a third complimentary colour.
