Merge Mitts by Irina Dmitrieva
These warm fingerless mitts feature a rich, tailored cable texture along the back of the hand, with a fitted gusset for comfort and ease of movement. Mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up, with palm side in plain stockinette.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, elasticity, and yardage requirement.
