The scent of honeysuckle bushes remind me of summer. Honeysuckle Fingerless Mitts are a lacy, stretchy design worked with just 1 skein of Shibui Staccato in a luscious blend of merino and silk. A picot cast on at the cuff adds texture and visual interest. Worked from cuff to fingertip, a plain Stockinette thumb gusset emerges from ribbing flanking either side of the main lace pattern. These mitts may easily be made larger by increasing the number of ribbed stitches at the sides. Written lace pattern is provided. Treat your hands to these soft and elegant mitts.
