Pattern rereleased 2013: 2 additional sizes, schematic, improved written instructions, rationalised charts, converted to two circs/ Magic Loop for easier knitting.

Short fingerless mitts that knit up from just 50g of lustrous silk yarn. Worked in-the-round from the scalloped cuff up and with a gusset thumb, the textured lace cuts asymmetrically across the hand and a reverse scallop edging gives balance. Adds a beautiful accent to any outfit; ideal for weddings! Pattern is charted with written instructions and is rated as challenging.

Advanced skills needed: provisional cast-on, knitting in-the-round, Magic Loop=, lace knitting, following charts
