These retro vintage mitts in three sizes (S/M/L) will help you welcome autumn weather with an enthusiastic attitude. The easy to work, two-color pattern creates a dense but lightweight fabric that can be worn indoors or out. Use any arrangement of brightly contrasting shades for a fun pop of color or a neutral combination for a
more subtle effect. In a slightly more substantial yarn, this is a quick knitting project that results in a soft, comfy layer that hands will appreciate for driving, biking, and attending fall spectator sports.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
