These pretty fingerless mitts are knitted flat up to the palm, then joined to knit in the round for about 2.5 inches. They are seamed and have decorative buttons sewn on afterwards. The pattern is an easy mock cable and eyelet that looks like the swirling waters of a flowing river.

This project is a quick knit, approximately 3 hours. Requires basic skills such as knit, purl, knit 2 together, yarn overs, and knitting in the round on double pointed needles.
