these mitts were patterned after a pair of mitts i saw tif fussell (aka dottie angel) wearing in her suitcase series book. i just had to have a pair and name them after her.
the mitts are working inside out (to get the reverse stockinette without all the fussy purling) with a 12 stitch cable. the body of the mitt starts out a bit loose and then tightens up around the finger area. the mitts are finished off with a knit on lace edging in garter stitch.
