Knitting – a ball of yarn and two sticks. Something that people have done throughout the ages. Out of necessity and out of love. The stitches, in all their basic simplicity, forming creations that are either purely functional or very complex, and each decidedly unique. Knitting is both a very practical skill and a creative one. The everyday, ordinary magic.

These ageless mitts will be just the thing to add to your wardrobe. The gentle curves of the cables offer a comforting classic touch, while the ribbing at the sides ensures a snug fit.

Knit together with the Ordinary Magic Hat for a matching set!
