Charmingly simple without being too sweet, these easy fingerless mitts are nice for early spring when there is still a chill in the air. A simple knit-and-purl texture spirals around the mitts in a diagonal pattern, growing organically from the cuffs. This creates a nice effect on one side of the mitts where textured stitch meets plain stockinette on the diagonal. You may choose to wear these with either the diagonal or the fully textured side facing “out” on the back of your hand. The stitch pattern looks “right” any way you choose to wear them.
