These are fingerless lacy mitts which do not require a thumb gusset. They are knit flat, seamed on the side with a hole left for the thumb, and a row of eyelet at the wrist through which a ribbon passes for decorative effect and fit.
There are 2 lace patterns, one for the cuff which s a variation of feather and fan, and one for the hand, which is razor shell. They are easy to work, although the designer uses a k4 tog tbl and a k3 tog tbl. The charts are large and easy to read.
Approximately 190 yards of laceweight is required for one pair. The length of hand and cuff are adjustable, and the change of needle size provides a structured fit for the wrist. Striping or variegated yarn makes a pretty mitt; solid colors switched between cuff and wrist would provide pretty contrast as well.
The designer provides alternative lace patterns which could be used instead of what she has written, with locations of patterns in the book. .
