Designed using Canopy Worsted in Sumac, a rich red with maroon tones, the hand warmers feature a Channel Island Cast on and a diagonal rib welt at the cuff, a decorative seed stitch "seam" and a traditional "Tree of Life" gansey pattern on the top of the hand. Designed with extra length for optimum warmth, the mitts give you the most bang for your buck and use all of the required 2 skeins.
