The perfect little accessory when you don’t want to make yet another cowl or hat, great for gifting as they don’t have to fit perfectly to be enjoyed.

These mitts with their gently undulating textured stitch were inspired by a gently flowing river that meanders from Chatham, Massachusetts, to Nantucket Sound. The water is not very deep, the perfect haven for migrating wildlife or a canoe trip. In the late spring as the flowers begin to bloom, before the crowds flock to the coast, a warm hat and pair of mitts will be much appreciated on late afternoon walks. For added durability when foraging for shells or picking wildflowers, these mitts were designed with ease of care in mind, using Universal Yarn Worsted Superwash.
