Whether you’re in the office or out for a hike, these mitts are the perfect thing to keep your hands warm but still free. Using only a skein and a few hours, these are great for gifts or for yourself. The spike stitch works perfectly to accentuate the yarn we have used: the soft and sumptuous Manos del Uruguay silk blend.
