The Novemberist mitts are part of a hat and mitt set dreamed up during an especially memorable November. Made in two high-contrast colorways, these fingerless mitts are doubly thick throughout with turned hems at each opening and a chevron stitch pattern achieved by stranded knitting—both features that make these mitts warmer than your average fingerless mitts!
