Tweed Set

Description

A longer, refined pair of fingerless mitts in three sizes (S/M/L) to knit in a houndstooth textured fabric with buttoned cuff. Feminine in a pastel colorway, they easily transition to a tailored favorite when knit in a neutral or undyed shade. Choosing a luster wool yarn or a blend with some silk will enhance the subtle fabric texture. This project is a relaxing, easy to work knit that produces a sophisticated finished look.
