Leaves of Three
These fingerless mitts are knit in the round from the bottom up. The pattern is written for one size. The mitts are quite stretchy and will comfortably fit hand circumferences of 6 to 7.5 inches. For a smaller or larger mitt, try going up or down a needle size, or use light fingering weight yarn or sportweight.
Pattern instructions are for 4 dpns, but knitters can also use Magic Loop or whichever method they prefer. The mitts require 18 #6 seed beads and a very small steel crochet hook that will fit through the holes in your beads (I used a US #10/1.15mm hook).
A 16-inch circular is optional. At the start, many stitches are cast on and then gradually reduced via decreases. I used a 16-inch circular to cast on and switched to dpns when there were too few stitches remaining to work on the circular.
The stitch patterns are provided in chart form.
