Stripes and spots--these light, silky mitts show off both! A nifty slip stitch pattern creates a captivating combination of texture and color on each speckled cuff. Then, easy one-row striping extends up the palm from the welt at the wrist. Soft, whimsical, colorful—these mitts are perfect for fresh morning walks and nights around the campfire.

We knit these fingerless mitts in fingering-weight Shibui Staccato. A lovely balance of merino and silk, two plies are spun snugly together for softness and strength. The fine, delicate, drapey fabric has beautiful stitch definition and a silky sheen. And pairing two of Shibui’s rich colors together is so much fun! We’ve put together some colorways on our project page.
