This pattern will be available in December 2011 in the forthcoming book Juju’s Loops!
This pattern has it all - lace, twisted stitches and ribbing. It stretches and contracts beautifully to give a well-fitted fingerless mitten with wrist-narrowing appeal while the wavy lines work to elongate the arm.
It looks best in subtle semi-solid, hand-paint yarns such as luxurious madelinetosh Pashmina or Handmaiden Casbah.
