Inspired by Jane Austen’s most famous romantic interest, Fitz is a sturdy fingerless mitt perfect for your own Mr. Darcy. Like Mr. Darcy, these mitts have more detail and interest than initially meets the eye. A mock cable border flows smoothly into a subtle allover mini cable lattice in the main section of the mitts. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and provides a good opportunity to practice cables if you are unfamiliar with them.
