A knitting pattern for fingerless mitts with a ribbed and lacy leaf design.
Green or golden (or any colour you fancy) leaves cascade from the sky and surround your hands to give you warmth despite the cool autumn breezes. This ribbed leaf pattern uses cabling without a cable needle so you can have an elegant look without any fuss. They’re available in three different widths and a custom height so you can make your mitts fit you better. Knit them up in a weekend and enjoy!
This pattern is for a knitter who enjoys knitting in the round and is comfortable making a gusset for the thumb.
These mitts take just one skein of Lion Brand Heartland or Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. You can use any worsted or aran weight yarn you prefer.
The pattern as written provides for three widths with further customisation available for the length.
