~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Smooth Stone is a pair of textured mitts constructed from the bottom up with worsted-weight yarn. A gusset-less thumb opening makes these mitts a simple and quick knit. The stitch pattern evokes a maze of criss-crossing paths over a field of stones.

The stitch pattern is both written and charted.
