FD-15 Tenaya Mitts
These finger-less mitts have rivulets of pattern running down the side of each hand. Knit exactly the same as each other, the mitts can be worn on either hand—there’s no confusion with making one for the right, and a different one for the left. Expanded size range means you can knit matching mitts for the whole family! Notice: Tenaya now written in 8 sizes (instead of the original 3), and has new models, updated photos, and has been tech edited with all these changes. Pattern update released November 14, 2014.
Tenaya coordinates with Merced socks.
