Nicnevin is the Scottish Goddess of witches. In Fife it was believed she would steal unfinished knitting projects on New Years Eve - so get these done in plenty of time! These mitts feature two cables that blend seamlessly into the rib at the cuff and top of the mitt. The asymmetrically placed cable on the back of the hand is complemented by the thumb cable which splits to surround the thumb gusset before merging together again at the top of the glove.
