A robust twist-stitch and lace pattern wends its way from cuff to top hem, in these fingerless mitts in two sizes (S/M and M/L). Thick jungle vines pierced with light and shot with the colors of flowers and darting birds are brought to mind when a variegated yarn is used. The pattern is built with simple stitch maneuvers and the sculpted thumb gusset provides a comfortable, stretchy fit—the perfect thing to make ahead for gifting season.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, elasticity, and yardage requirement.
