The cool mountain lake terrain of early fall was the inspiration for these long, asymmetrical fingerless mitts in two sizes (S/L), worked in rippling openwork stitch patterns. Mitts feature a biasing vine motif around the long cuffs transitioning to a solid fabric for the hand, transversed by one diagonal lace panel. The shaped thumb gusset provides a sculpted fit to complete the elegant look. The cuff length is easily shortened if desired and the circumference may be further tailored by using a smaller or larger needle size.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
