A luxurious set of fingerless mitts and cap to knit in three sizes (S, M, L), perfect for early fall weather. The rich openwork brocade of twining lines creates a lush organic surface that showcases a soft airy yarn. The easy to work fabric translates beautifully in both jewel tones and shades from nature. Ribbed hems provide a classic, neat finish to the edges. To learn more about the design process of Wheaten Cap and Mitts, read the blog.
