Burnham by Leila Raabe - from Brooklyn Tweed
These stranded mittens feature two different motifs and can be worn with either side on the tops of your hands. For ease of working, the pattern refers to a specific Left and Right Mitten, though the fit is interchangeable depending on which side you feel like wearing "up". Latvian braids centered over the ribbed cuff add a unique detail to this classic mitten shape with a side-gore thumb.
