These fine gauge fingerless mitts in three sizes (S/M/L), are sure to become a favorite for accessorizing indoors or out. A slightly fuzzy luxury yarn will show off both the reversible lace and the openwork accent along the back of the hand. Delicate and airy, the openwork pattern shows off the halo of a fine luxury yarn, while a stockinette body and thumb gusset provide a tailored fit for warmth and contrast. The easy to knit pattern, worked entirely in the round makes an excellent gifting project and a very portable traveling companion.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
