Cozy fingerless mitts that are extra-long to keep the chill away! These unisex mitts have a fold-down top for more or less finger coverage and dexterity. Three types of ribbing flow into each other for some fun textural variation. The tubular cast-on and kitchener bind-off make for very finished cuffs. They are technically optional, but give them a try!
