These cabled mittens are a neutral soft gray, hand knit in a single ply merino wool, slightly thick and thin. They are so very, very soft.
Most mittens have a gusset with increases on each side of the thumb that start near the wrist. Scandinavian mittens have thumbs that stick out of the palm and have no gusset at all. My mittens sport a new, single line gusset which I think has a very neat look. There is even a tiny gusset where the thumb joins the palm. These innovations make the mittens fit very well.
Another feature of these mitten is the 3” long cuff. No cold wrists while wearing these. Notice how the cuff pattern grows right into the main pattern on the back of the mitten.
These will fit a small or medium woman‘s hand because the cables stretch. They will fit most women.
Want them in a different color or larger? Let me know.
Not the perfect pair for you? I have lots of other mittens at LesleysHandknits.
