St. Bega Mitts

This cosy pair of fingerless mitts feature decorative tucks knitted into the piece as it is worked. The soft shaping created by these details means just a little more warmth and comfort from an otherwise blank canvas. Worked in the round in one piece, these mitts are a single skein project perfect for gifts to loved ones or ourselves.
