Brin Mains Mitts

The weather outside is frightful!  It's a little chilly inside, too.  So whether you're looking for some quick-to-knit winter gear for yourself or for a last-minute gift, these pretty fingerless mitts will fit the bill.

The samples pictured here are knit in Elemental Affects 100% North American Shetland Wool, in the beautiful hand-dyed colors of Lichen and Red Bark.  I love the contrasting colors, but Brin Mains would be lovely knit in two closely related colors, or even in natural shades for a dressier look. 

The longer length of both the hand and the cuff add a bit of elegance and extra warmth.  You can, of course, always make them shorter (and thus an even quicker knit!).

The Brin Mains Mitts pattern is available now in my Ravelry store.  Enjoy!
