When sunlight filters through water to the river rock below, there is an enchanting dance of form and color. So too does this simple slip-stitch pattern showcase the play of color across texture. Solid, variegated and even self-striping yarns shine in these beautiful mitts.

These mitts are constructed with a very stretchy mesh stitch and may appear deceptively small when not on the hand.

In addition to written instructions, charts are provided for each size and the thumb gusset. Please note that the cuffs and tops of thumbs are not charted.
