Southwest Mitts

Inspired by the symbols of my southwest home and the Navajo influence in the region, these colorful fingerless mitts bring a little bit of the desert to anyone who wears them. They also provide warmth for those chilly days. These colorwork mitts are worked in the round with two contrasting colors and a different pattern for the palm of the mitt to keep things interesting.

Total Donated So Far

51% of all profit from this design is donated to the Navajo Relief Fund, whose mission is to help Native American people on the vast Navajo reservation, which spreads across parts of Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah improve the quality of their lives by providing opportunities for them to bring about positive changes in their communities. Many families struggle to survive in the face of extreme poverty, substandard housing, sporadic medical care, and limited educational opportunities and we can help.
