Texture, cashmere and drape add up to make these mitts incredibly fun to knit, and even better to wear. They keep your hands toasty warm without being to thick. Their length protects your wrists from the chill, while also reaching towards the tips of your fingers to keep them warm, but still allowing them to move freely. They also look great cuffed at the fingers, instead of worn long. The techniques used in these mitts are great even for the beginner knitter, while leaving you with an accessory that is polished enough for any wardrobe. They are one of 3 patterns available in the Wanderlust Collection designed exclusively for Knit Purl in Portland!
