Nancy Pearl Mitts
These lacy fingerless mitts will keep your hands toasty while allowing your fingers freedom to type or knit. The Frost Flowers lace design is pretty and delicate but not too “holey” so they really will add warmth. The naturally formed arches of the cuffs provide a graceful finish.
The mittens start with a few rows of garter stitch for firmness, then continue in the lace stitch, ending with a picot bind-off at the top. The palm features a panel in 1x1 ribbing, to ensure a snug fit.
Gauge: 28 sts and 32 rows = 10 cm/4 in. in stockinette stitch.
**Finished Size: **Mitts will stretch to fit a hand between 7 and 8 inches/17.5 to 20 cm in circumference. Mitt is 8 inches long.
Lace is charted.
Errata: There is a typo on the chart: Round 27 should have a yarn over before the purl stitch. The fourth paragraph of the Cuff instructions should end: (k1, p1) 4 times. First round of the Upper Hand should end: p2tog, (p1, k1) twice, p1, p2tog. The paragraph that starts “You should now have the correct number of sts” should instead be : “You should now have 57 sts…”. The round that ends with 55 sts should end: “p2tog, k1, p1, k1, p2tog”.
