These fingerless mittens are cozy and warm thanks to the dense slip-stitch pattern, but appear feminine and stylish when knit in a beautiful hand-dyed colorway. The mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up. The cuff, top of the mitt and top of the thumb are all worked in a short single rib stitch pattern. The front and back of the mitt are worked in a diagonal float stitch pattern. There is also a sliver of garter stitch on both sides.
