The beauty of these gray merino mittens is in the details. The elegant cuffs have a woven cable pattern, the thumb gusset grows from the cuff on the palm, there is a tiny gusset where the thumb joins the palm and the decreases at the top match the cuff borders. Striations of light to medium shades of gray also add visual interest.
The yarn is a single ply, slightly thick and thin, kettle dyed merino from Uruguay. These mittens are so very soft and warm, and the cuffs are extra long to extend inside your coat sleeves. They would pair beautifully with a red or dark colored coat.
These will fit most women with medium hands and average length fingers (without long nails).
Not the perfect pair for you? Want them in a different color or size? I have lots of other mittens in my gallery and I also do custom knitting. Just ask.
