Knitting lace needn’t be a six-month ordeal. These lace mitts knit up quickly in your favorite sock yarn and are the perfect weight for wearing both indoors and out.

Small cables draw the wrist in and ribs across the palms provide both elasticity and fit. Picot points prevent circulation-restricting bind-offs while providing a decorative touch. The mitts leave your fingers free, allowing freedom of movement while keeping your hands warm. If you want clear stitch
definition for the lace panels, use a solid or semi-
solid yarn, not self-striping or hand painted.
