Lacy, delicate, little mitts perfect for summer garden parties or chilly summer nights. Pianissimo!

These mitts use just a few hundred yards of laceweight yarn, making them perfect to use up leftovers from larger skeins after you’ve purl finished a shawl or stole. They’d also be ideal for 1 or 2 ounces of Very Special handspun.

Note that the lace and ribbing makes these mitts very stretchy. the 6” size easily fits hands 7.5” around.
