Nathair Mitts are a soft and squishy pair of mitts with a centered cable going down the back of the hand. They feature a regular style thumb gusset, with mirrored increases on either side of the thumb, making a nice little area for your thumb to fit cozily.
The official first pattern in my Smart Thumb series. This is the basic thumb gusset, as you find in many patterns.
