Companion mitts to the Lochmoor Headband, Lochmoor Mitts feature an extended cuff to keep cold breezes at bay. An attractive, four plait cable travels the length of the mitts and right into the cuff, blending seamlessly with the 2/1 ribbing, while the palms are simple stockinette for comfort. Mitt/thumb lengths are easily modified for more coverage, if desired.
