I’m ready for spring. Alas, spring is not quite ready for me. It’s not actually warm enough to go outside without a little something extra just yet. But if I have to put on thick, heavy layers even one more time, I may weep.
These mitts are keeping me warm (and sane) until spring properly arrives. The lovely, delicate lace is is just the right thing to remind me that spring is coming, while still keeping me cozy until it gets here!
The mitts are easy to make (the stitch pattern repeats every four rows, you’ll have it memorized in no time), and are the perfect way to use up bits of leftover sock yarn. They’re a quick knit are delightfully stretchy (so they’ll fit most anyone), making them perfect gift knitting. But I think you probably deserve a pair for yourself, don’t you?
Note: This pattern was originally released early in my designing career. In 2013, I decided that I wanted to rework some of my favorite older patterns (reknit them in current yarns, take new pictures, draw new charts, rewrite the text), so I took many of my earliest patterns down for a hiatus while they were being reworked. This pattern is now being re-released it its completely updated form for everyone to enjoy.
