Terzetto Lace Mitts :: Victorian style fingerless gloves

Envision these fingerless gloves in the perfect setting of an afternoon tea on the lawn, or just gracing the hands of the mistress of the manor as she makes her rounds of the mansion grounds.

Terzetto Lace Mitts are named for the threesome of lace stitch patterns used in their design. Let this trio of lace stitches sing to you while knitting and wearing these elegant near elbow-length Victorian style fingerless gloves.

(Terzetto is a musical term meaning a trio for instruments or voices.)
