Cool classy mittens with an overall egyptian style pattern. Knit in the round, they start with a garter stitch edge, leading on to a corrugated rib and then the interesting fairisle pattern. Waste yarn is used to indicate the thumb which will be worked later and the mitts are shaped for the fingers, The fingertips are finished off with kitchener stitch grafting.
