Alexis Winslow’s stranded mittens feature graphic arrow motifs scaling their length. Worked in a firm, 2-color fabric, the mittens are both warm and refined. Instructions have been included to allow the wrist length to be customized for a shorter or longer mitten. Choose two colors with a high value contrast for a bold, graphic effect as shown, or lessen the contrast for a more understated look.
