Pattern Description from “Maybe it’s cool, but not so much so to warrant a full pair of gloves or mittens. Or maybe you really like to have your fingers free so you can walk the dog, drive the car, or get your ID out for the doorman. Or maybe you just feel your hands need a new accessory. Heck, these could even go over a pair of gloves to add style to an otherwise boring necessity of winter. Whatever your reason, these nearly gloves can make a fun addition to your wardrobe. I’ve done mine up in a yarn called Ziti, that is thick and stretchy with just enough texture to give them a little interest without overwhelming the simple lace pattern on top. The ribbing underneath ensures a ‘one size fits most’ construction.”


  • #13 needles
  • 1 ball of ziti in color of choice
  • 2 Stitch markers

Yarn Substitution: Ziti is a bulky weight yarn with a lot of stretch and a bit of it’s own texture. It also has just a touch of metallic to it. You could hold about 3 strands of Cascade Fixation to get a similar hand, but I’ve seen these worked up in other bulky and aran yarns with great results.
