Cottonmouth Mitts

On Sale
Added to cart
Knitting comes in many textures: lacy, fuzzy, drapey, plush -- but rarely scaly. These fingerless mitts use deceptively simple stitch clusters, cables, and garter ridges to mimic the back and belly scales of the rugged-yet-lithe cottonmouth snake. The Cottonmouth Mitts are knit flat from arm to fingers then seamed up the outer edge; the result is an easy knit with striking results, no snake charming required.
