Fingerless Garter Mitts
Pattern description from One Skein: “Keep your hands fashionably warm in a pair of fingerless mitts. Super-simple, they’re worked side to side in garter stitch, then seamed along the inside of the hand with a custom-fit thumb opening. A few rows of elongated stitches make the knitting conform to the shape of your hand and give the mitts a lacy look. Add beads or even sequins (it’s easy!) for a dressy alternative.”
