A fingerless mitts pattern with a lacy “clove stitch” design.
Lovely lace decorates these elegant fingerless mitts, which would be the perfect accompaniment for a wedding dress–but they look great worn casually, too.
This pattern is for a knitter who enjoys knitting in the round, and is comfortable switching to rows to make a thumb hole.
These mitts take less than one skein of Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. You can use any worsted or aran weight yarn you prefer, but I love Stylecraft’s range of colors.
Only one size is provided in the instructions, but the mitts produced are stretchy. However, it is simple to adjust the width by adding or subtracting 4 stitches at a time from the pattern if a wider or narrower mitt is desired.
