In the transitional seasons of spring and fall we pay special attention to the leaves coming and going from the trees. These fingerless mitts are perfect for transitional seasons whether the leaves are green or brown.

Construction Notes
These mitts are knit in the round with ribbed cuffs and a slipped stitch wristband for shaping. Mirrored charts are provided for the leaves. The ribbing allows the extremely soft yarn hugs your wrists and hands keeping them toasty warm on chilly nights.
