The Mori Lace Gloves use a simple lace at the wrist to create a gentle ruffle, then proceed up the hand with geometric lace at the back (bordered with a subtle 1×1 cable on each side) and a simple thumb gusset. There are special instructions for a bind-off that hits the sweet spot between stretchy enough for finger and thumb movement, and firm enough to not stretch out of shape. None of the lace stitches are exceedingly advanced; any intermediate lace knitter or adventurous beginner could have an easy time making a sweet, rustic set of fingerless mitts.

Sample was knitted and is modeled by Em DeWitt, or asynch.

As written, they fit small to medium adult hands, but adjustment of needles or yarn could be done to adjust sizing.

Please note that the lace is charted only, but shaping instructions for the thumb are written out.
