Sun dials are an elegant, durable, and ancient way to track the time of day. These mitts mimic them with a simple, elegant cable that runs up each thumb. The classic durability of a woolly, warm yarn memorializes both ideals in your knitting.

Construction Notes
A simple pair of ribbed fingerless mitts with a twist. A closed loop celtic cable grows out of the thumb gusset increases and is finished on the thumb.
