These classic, fingerless mitts in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) are named for a popular style of chain link with a similar appearance. The tailored thumb gusset and overall yummy texture will satisfy any appetite—they’ll pair with everything from a sleek dress coat to a casual tech jacket. Knit them with a doubled cuff for extra depth and warmth around the wrists or work a trim single cuff (shown here) for smooth urban style.
