Pattern description from Knitting Little Luxuries: “These cozy fingerless mittens are so simple to knit, but the luxurious yarns and dainty lace edging makes them a simply luxurious accessory. The gold and pink hues of the striped pair remind me of something worn by a princess in a fairy story, while the pink pair is classically feminine …so if you know anyone wanting to embrace her inner princess, these mittens would make the ideal gift.”

Yarn listed is for the striped version, as is the greater yardage number. Pattern also includes a plain, one color version which calls for the smaller yardage.

Finished Size: 6.25” circumference measured above thumb. Mittens will stretch to fit a woman’s hand

Yarn: DK weight (#3 Light) and worsted weight (#4 Medium).
