Luna’s Mitts

In DK weight yarn, For the hands, Patterns by Shannon

These mitts use the same stitch pattern as the Bobo’s Socks, and are perfect for those early-morning strolls with your pup. The meditative stitching and the Luna-inspired colorway make these a rainbow-lover’s dream to make and wear.
