These pretty fingerless mitts use an unusual zigzag rib combined with a single cable on the top of the hand. The palm is decorated with 2 sets of zigzag stitches with a stockinette stitch background.
They use less than 50gm of yarn, so treat yourself (or someone special) to something beautiful and practical.
Here's a quote from one of the test-knitters: "Really cute mitts and I love the new stitch I learned, the zig-zag ribbing. Haven’t had as much fun doing a process for years! It is downright FUN! Not to mention amazing - in looks AND in stretchiness."
S/M and M/L
(choose larger size for a looser fit and/or larger hands; top photo shows size S/M on an average size hand)
Approx 5.5 (6.5) in/14 (16.5) cm, unstretched and 8 (9) in/20 (22.5) cm stretched, around palm of hand; 8 in/20 cm from top edge to hem.
The rib pattern is quite stretchy, so the mitts will fit most hands.
Pattern has been test-knit.
