These fingerless mitts feature stylised roses and leaves. A rosebud is picked out on the thumb. I tend to hoard the ends of sock yarn from other projects, so it felt good to use some of them up in the corrugated ribbing on the cuffs – there are five shades used here (count ‘em!)! However, you can easily adapt the number of shades to your own preference
