These lovely fingerless mitts have nice texture over the hand created by alternating double crochet and single crochet stitches. The wrist sports ribbing for a snug fit. A few stitches are skipped as the mitt is worked and a ribbed thumb is added after the mitts are complete. Five pictures help you complete the steps.
