Sweet Tea

Description

These featherweight mitts in 4 sizes (XS/S/M/L) are a simple project with just a touch of whimsical lace at the cuff for a feminine note. Designed specifically for cooler fibers such as cotton, linen, and silk, they will knit up equally well in lightweight wool and yarn blends. The sculpted thumb and slim fit provide a close-fitting layer for the hands while working at one’s desk or moving about outdoors between seasons.
