My friend Andrea looks amazing in handwarmers, particularly those with a vintage “grandpa” feel. These were inspired by her, as well as by my own gramps and the wicker pattern on his porch chair. The lace pattern is very simple and easy to memorize, and would be great for those new to lace. These mitts are knit on straight needles, not in the round, so they are perfect for anyone with an aversion to double-pointed needles. Because of their construction, gauge is not essential and you can test the fit as you go, so substituting yarn is a snap. Airy, light and perfect for summer, these would make a great gift for any handwarmer lover.
