DESCRIPTION

My first knit design that I have written a pattern for. I am offering my pattern for free!I designed this pattern to be an easy/intermediate project for beginner knitters who what to take their skills to the next level, and for anyone wanting a quick, fun, easy, not boring project that takes only one skein of yarn.

TRANSCRIPT

Frosty MittsBy Grace JonesKnit from the elbow to the hand, these easy lace mitts are a great beginner lace project. Two simple lace patterns ow over the wrist and the hand is knit in stockinette with an easy yarn over increased thumb gusset. Optional glittery trim is picked up and knit from the cast on edge for a little bit of glitz and glamour. Enjoy!
