Meet the Sprout Mittens

The Sprout Mittens were designed for the lingering cold in the spring. Made with a sport weight yarn, they are just the right amount of warmth for cool spring days. They have a long cuffs to tuck into your jacket or sweater as well as statement cables 'sprouting' from the cuffs. The cables have an offset placement, mirrored for the left and right mitts.
