A handed pair of mitts with opposing diagonal eyelets, Perforate shows off how effective a simple stitch pattern can be with the right attention to detail. Designed to suit even the most particular of mitt-wearers, the mitts are a perfect reflection of each other, with the diagonals lining up perfectly when you put your hands together.
