Modern and graphic, the Rosalind mitts celebrate a bold cable and simple rolled edge. The surrounding reverse stockinette and garter stitches create a variety of textures to highlight the rich depth of colors found in hand dyed yarn.

The unique slipped stitch cable—with a cleverly placed twist—adds a bit of shaping at the wrist, and the tailored thumb gusset provides an exceptional fit. Elegant ribbing is the perfect finishing touch!
