A delightful ascending pattern of wings adorns these fingerless mitts. These are the perfect accessory to knit with a skein of farm yarn from your local mill, farmer’s market, or fiber festival. These mitts are especially nice for handspun yarn, as they were designed to accommodate yarns ranging from sport to light worsted weight. Knit from the cuff up, they feature simple cable stitches and a sweet skep motif on the thumb gusset.
