Mittens with extra density around the fingers are a must in windy, cold weather and these babies deliver in six unisex sizes (XXS to XL) for men, women, and children. Slip-stitch colorwork, set in a field of cushy textured rib gives them a vintage vibe. Pick any array of light/medium/dark shades to combine—or use up leftovers from a Champlain (S)watch Cap—and you’ve got a delicious accessory to match the cap, great for colorwork newbies
