Professor Pomona Sprout’s fingerless mitts reflect her personality; earthy, robust, and ready for hard work. Cast on provisionally at the outer edge of the hand, they are worked flat using short rows, then grafted for a seamless finish. The cuff is shaped into a point with increases and decreases, and made to flare with a short row wedge. The finger opening is embellished with a spikey picot edge worked by casting on and binding off stitches.
Finished Size: 6.5 (7.5, 8.75)” palm circumference and 7.5 (8.5, 9.5)” length from cuff point to tip.
Other Materials: 2 markers, color A and color B; scrap yarn; stitch holders; yarn needle.
The photos here also show the mitts with ribbon lacing through the yarnovers in the cuff shaping wedge, as originally conceived.
