Product Description

Bofur is the lighthearted spirit of the company. He has lovely, simple mitts in the movies and I’ve elaborated on them a bit in this design to keep things interesting. The cuff features a simple bamboo rib but could be substituted for seed stitch to keep the mitts authentic to the mitts in the movie.

The sizing on this pattern span from a small woman up to a large man. Make sure you check your palm measurement to ensure you are casting on for the right size! This unisex pattern looks just as great on a man as it does on a woman.
