Pattern: Delicious Mitts

Squashy garter stitch interplays with smooth stockinette in this textured fingerless mitt and hat duo. The garter stitch gathers gently and creates a really pretty fabric that hugs curves and makes for a comfortable fit on most sizes. Warm, wooly deliciousness!

Pattern is available for $6 in our Ravelry Shop
