Ameliorate verb
- to make better or more tolerable

It’s going to get cooler. I can’t do anything about that, but these little lacy mitts might be just the thing to make it a bit more bearable.

These mitts are perfect for using up leftover bits of sock yarn (or even bits of your hand-spun yarn). The pattern is written in 4 sizes to fit most anyone. They knit up quickly and are a great way to get a head start on your holiday knitting.

These are perfect for you if:

  • Your hands are always cold
  • You’ve got a bit of left over sock yarn you’re dying to use up

They’re not for you if:

  • You don’t like charts (the pattern uses charts)
  • You hate swatching (you need to swatch to check your needle size)
