Named after the overlapping roof tiles used in ancient Greek and Roman architecture, the Imbrex Mitts are the final touch atop your heavy base layer. These go nicely with silk longies and endless mugs of steaming tea or thrown in your car for that overly cold office building. Put them on for early morning walks with your pampered pup and don’t bother taking them off until you see crocuses.
Worked up quickly with a lovely mosaic stitch (use one color per row) that’s a breeze to master, these mitts are a pleasure to knit and wear.
