These wonderfully warm Malva fingerless mitts are knitted with 2-ply pure wool, which is ideally suited to stranded knitting. The fine grains pattern and small purled edging lend an extra textural detail. I added embroidery to give a special festive and a individually “handmade” feel.
To fit an adult, 4“ (10 - 10,5 cm) – size M/L wide, 10.6“ (19 cm) long.
The pattern is in English. The pattern included written and charted instructions, colored charts for embroidery and embroidery technique.
