A knitting pattern for fingerless mitts with a simple lace design.
Make these light, airy, lacy cotton mitts in a weekend – knit flat or in the round. They’re just warm enough to keep the chill off your hands when the wind picks up without being too heavy to wear in late spring or early autumn.
This pattern is written two ways: for a knitter who is comfortable knitting in the round and switching to rows for a thumb hole, and for a knitter who is comfortable knitting flat and seaming up one side.
These mitts take around 2 skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. However, you can use any worsted or aran weight yarn you prefer.
The pattern as written provides for one length and width, but instructions are given for further adjusting the width. The stitch pattern used is charted for rounds and for rows.
