Warm, thick mittens are the best defense against deep winter cold and this pair in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) will be much appreciated by any family member when the cold winds blow. Simple cable crosses form a modern vertical motif that travels up the outside edge—engaging to knit and delicious to wear. Knit in a round, tightly twisted yarn for crisp stitch definition and a windproof fabric or work in a relaxed yarn or fiber blend for a softer texture and feel.
