These mitts were shown in a bunch of different ways, including two colors and fingering and dk weights. These beautiful slate grey mitts are worked up in Willow Yarns Daily DK weight, a 100% superwash wool that is cozy and durable.

And just a little plug while we’re all scrambling for holiday gifts – Cedar Glenn Mitts are fun to knit and work up quickly with a lot of textural interest to keep you interested! Any woman on your list would absolutely love a pair.
