These pretty mittens are a study in nuance, featuring two pale shades of natural wool, a beautifully subtle striping sequence and a long, shaped cuff for perfect fit. The mittens are made fingerless with an optional flip-top that is held in place with a single button on top of the hand. For a plain mitt version, simply ignore the flip-top section of the pattern.
