Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, increase/decrease

Pattern Description:

These simple, weightless mitts in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) knit up quickly in laceweight yarn to provide a light layer of warmth without limiting hand mobility or dexterity. Worked entirely in knit and purl stitches with simple shaping, they offer a sculpted, no-slip fit that feels like a second skin. Optional patterning on the back of the hand adds some fully fashioned detailing. This is a fine beginner project that makes great use of leftover lace yarns.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
