A sweet lace pattern that mimics fallen leaves on a forest floor accent these pretty fingerless mitts . A great way to sample lace knitting without the concentration & commitment that a larger project requires. I wanted a simple design that works well with solid and variegated yarns as well as a stretchy fabric that would accommodate a range of sizes.

Written out in line by line instruction, this pattern is suitable for beginners and/or those new to lace knitting.
