I designed these fingerless mitts to go with the Lotus Flower Hat. I looked around and couldn’t find the exact thing I wanted so I made up a pattern. They are easy and quick to make. I can make a pair in a day. Perfect for a quick gift or charity.

I have provided written directions for a smaller size, (6-7 inch circumference palm) and a larger size (8-9 inch circumference palm). The lace pattern has quite a bit of stretch to fit multiple size hands. There is a chart available with the hat pattern, if charts are desired.

Round 8; should be (k4, yo, ssk)

I used about half a skein per mitt, or a total of 125 yards of worsted weight cotton for the smaller size. The pattern can be adjusted to a shorter length if desired by skipping one lace repeat

My thanks go to Yvette for testing these for me!
