These eye catching fingerless mitts feature an asymmetrical diamond color-work motif that is sure to turn some heads! The dynamic design is framed by striped garter-stitch edging at the cuff and finger opening. The button-tab cuff lends a cute motorcycle glove feel, and a bit of funky flair. The diagonal striped patterns are easy to memorize, making this design really fun to knit. The pattern includes full color-work charts and detailed finishing instructions.
The sample shown was knitted in St-Denis Boreale in colors Ultramarine and Oatmeal on size 2 needles.
33 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in colorwork pattern. Size 2 needles suggested.
