This is a wonderful pattern for fingerless mitts. Because it uses a finger weight yarn they are soft and warm without having the bulk of other mitt patterns. Also, this pattern has a wonderful horseshoe cable stitch running down the back of each mitt.
6 sts = 1 in.
My mother taught me how to crochet 20 years ago and my love for it has just grown from there.
More recently, I have found the courage after so many years to start designing and creating my own patterns. I have also branched out and began to dye my own yarn to go along with the wonderful designs that I have floating around in my head.
