Classic architectural detail sets off this fingerless mitt and neckwarmer set in two sizes (S/L), to knit in fine, soft sock yarn. The mitts are sculpted to fit like a second skin, while the neckwarmer is relaxed. The seemingly complex cable pattern is a surprisingly simple motif.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size.
