The Sun timidly reappears, buds begin to form… There are unmistakable signs, spring is almost here! Spring Thaw Mitts translate this impatient waiting of warm beautiful days.
Knit in Broken seed stitch, they subtly showcase all the nuances of your favorite variegated yarn, while white alpaca yarn, evoking winter, adds warmth and a pastel tone with its fluff. This quick-to-knit project is perfect for that moment when seasons are still indecisive.
