Above are fingerless mitts that I finished last week. I really love them! Here are the specs:
Pattern: Merletto Mitts by Javajem.
Yarn: Supreme Possum, 4ply, Red – super warm and super soft, merino wool, possum, silk
Needles: size 2.5mm / US 1.5
Mods: used 1 size smaller needles (I have small hands); only 3 lace repeats before starting the thumb gusset; made the thumb 2 stitches bigger; made only 4 rows ribbing to end the top and thumb
Mods I wish I’d made: used a smaller needle for all ribbing; decreased thumb stitches by 2 or 3, 2 rows before starting the ribbing.
I made these specifically because our office has been so cold this winter and no matter what I do, my hands never warm up. They will be perfect for work!
