Warm, but light, Herbaceous mitts are just the ticket for cool fall days. The branched leaves lace pattern grows out of the lower ribbing and twines up the front of these long lacey mitts. Knit in the round, they knit up surprisingly fast in a fingering weight yarn. The pattern shows up best in a solid or tonal color.

Size is medium women’s. Will stretch to fit most hands. 7” unstretched, easily stretches to 8 .5”. To size down to small, use size 2.25 mm needles and light fingering weight yarn.
