Snake in the (Sweet)Grass

Double moss stitch, broken ribbing, and a snaky sinuous cable: these fingerless mittens beautifully showcase the squishiness of the Targhee fiber from SweetGrass Wool.

The strong, simple design appeals to men, and the pattern was originally designed as a man’s mitt, but it is certainly suitable for women as well.
