Whether you’re headed out for an afternoon walk on a chilly day, a play date at the park, or waiting for the train on your commute, you’ll be glad to have a pair of Rakel Mitts handy.

Featuring a richly textured lace panel, these mitts are an elegant addition to your cold-weather wardrobe.

The pattern includes instructions for both mittens and fingerless mitts. I designed the mittens using Tukuwool ‘Fingering.’ I was so pleased with the way that this rustic, woolen spun yarn showed off the lace and created a light, lofty fabric for trapping warmth around my hands. A single 50g skein will make a pair of mittens with yarn to spare.

A friend test knit the fingerless mitts in Woolfolk ‘Tynd’ and they are luxurious, softer than kittens and utterly cozy. A single 50g skein of ‘Tynd’ will make a pair of fingerless mitts.
