The Juniper Mitts have been designed to keep hands toasty no matter what, whether you’re engaged in an epic snowball fight, sipping mulled wine outside at a holiday market, or just bundling up to run errands
on a blustery morning.

Close cousins with the Juniper Socks, these mitts feature the same cosy, stretchy texture and are made of warm worsted weight yarn. The stitch pattern is quick and easy to learn, and the heavier yarn weight
makes them a great choice for under-the-wire gift knitting. The Juniper Mitts feature a simple gusset thumb and a long cuff and could easily be adapted for fingerless mitts too.
