To create a tighter, warmer fabric for these mitts, they are knit on needles several sizes smaller than the yarn label specifies. When substituting, seek a yarn that normally would knit up at 6 stitches per inch on US 5 (3.75 mm) needles.

A simple lace panel down the back of the hand lifts these fingerless mitts from purely practical to charmingly decorative. Worked in a tightly knit plush merino wool, they are both warm and versatile.
