These fingerless mittens are cozy and warm thanks to the dense slip-stitch pattern, but appear both modern and feminine when knit in a beautiful kettle or hand-dyed colorway. They feature vertical, horizontal, and diagonal lines making them quite the modern mitt. This pattern was originally published in the Three Irish Girls’ Eunice’s Choice yarn club in October 2015 under the title “Calypso Mitts.”
