Openwork Lace Fingerless Mitts
This pattern was written to use up some of my left over Lisa Souza Sock! Merino Yarn. This is also part of my never ending attempt to use up stash yarn. (Of course, I would have to actually stop buying sock yarn to win that particular battle.) This lightweight yarn prevents the mitts from feeling over-bulky. A definite plus while typing at a computer. Because they are knit from the fingers up, you can make them as long or short as you wish, or as your yarn allows. This pattern requires a basic understanding of knitting in the round with either double pointed or circular needles.
Yarn: Sock weight yarn. For the pair shown, I used approximately 35 grams of Lisa Souza Sock! Merino sock yarn – color – Lime & Violet.
Needles: Size 3, double pointed or two circular needles.
Gauge: 10 stitches per inch in openwork lace ribbing. Note: This is a very soft yarn and the fit will eventually loosen with wear. It does tighten back up with washing, but you can move down to a smaller needle size to allow for this. It should not be an issue with a firmer sock yarn.
