These fingerless mittens feature some crazy lace pattern: there is lace on each round and they will be a fun challenge for intermediate level lace knitters! They are knit all in the round with a thumb gusset and are completely seamless. They will look as good in a plain as in a variegated colorway. The pattern is written, the lace part is both written and charted.

Skill level: intermediate.

Techniques: knit/purl in the round and flat, increase, lace.

Yarn: 50 grams of any fingering weight yarn. The sample was made in Wendy Happy yarn. But any sock yarn will work fine. Variegated and solid colorways are both great choices.
