True North Mittens
Snowflakes falling on piney woods, pick-up hockey on frozen ponds, hot chocolate and crackling fires are all recalled in the new True North Mittens. Whimsical and retro with a distinctly Canadian vibe, True North combines simple stranded knitting with smooth fields of stockinette and easy shaping to create a perfect first fair isle project. And the silky-soft tweedy texture really looks like it’s snowing! These mittens have a mate! The matching TRUE NORTH HAT is also available!
