Maren Mitts were designed for those in-between days that are too warm for mittens but too cold for bare hands. These whimsical mitts are embroidered with crocus, the late-winter flowers that tell us spring is just around the corner.
These happy fingerless mitts are knit with 2 colors at a time. The simple addition of some embroidered flowers and French knots make them look much more complicated than they really are to knit.
