Most of the time the way I describe blocking lace varies between “aggressive” and “assertive.” But for the Shorty Squiggle Mitts, the word “gently” is essential. The marriage of the lace stitch and the yarn combine into a wonderful texture that I hate to lose. If you are unsure
about what size to make, consider erring on the larger size so that your hand doesn’t stretch it out too much.

Yarn Color: Oatmeal
Notions: Stitch marker, Tapestry Needle

This pattern can be worked entirely from written instructions or with supporting chart.
