Fingerless or full, the Guapa mittens are a treat for overworked hands trying to make it through the rest of the winter. The original full mitten pattern paired a luxurious yarn with dainty bow stitches for a soft, quick knit perfect for these last days of the season.

This updated and revised pattern now includes two additional sizes and the option for fingerless mitts. The second sample uses a rustic Shetland and showcases how pairing a hearty yarn with delicate stitches can create a more subtle texture that still shines.
