Silver Fir Mitts feature a horizontally knit cuff with a button-up detail. A single cable panel grows up from the cuff like a lone fir tree. DK weight yarn keeps your hands cozy during cooler months & ensures a fairly fast knit. Garter stitch details throughout the mitts pull the design together. Choose a solid or semi-solid yarn to best show off the design. A luxury blend like merino-alpaca will make this project extra special.

Be sure to check out the coordinating Silver Fir Hat and Silver Fir Cowl patterns, too!
