Elegant fingerless mittens are all the rage because they are both stylish and practical. These are made in the round, with shaping provided by changing the needle size. You start at the elbow and work down to the hand. The hand shaping has a separate opening for the thumb. The fan stitch pattern and rib pattern are provided both in written and charted forms. The gauntlets use Rhythm Superwash, a worsted weight wool yarn from Jojoland. Each skein has variety of colors with a long repeat. The gauntlets are 12" long with a circumference of 8". They can be machine washed and dried flat.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- double point needles in US size 7 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- double point needles in US size 6
- double point needles in US size 4
- stitch holder
- tapestry needle
