I've decided to share the pattern for the fingerless mitten / wristwarmers from yesterday's post with all the usual caveats. I'm not a professional knitwear designer. The pattern is offered 'as is' for your personal use only. Feel free to link to this post.
These lacy gauntlets have a stocking [ette] stitch palm and are quite forgiving when it comes to sizing but if you are particularly fine boned, my feeling is that you may want to go down a needle size, but I haven't tested this.
They WILL get slightly longer when blocked.
1 x 50gram ball of fingering or sockweight wool
the sample was made with a ball of "mystery" blue 4 ply [ fingering ] pure wool from my stash.
needles : 4mm straights
gauge: unblocked over stocking[ette] 12 stitches = 2"
gauge: blocked 11 stitches = 2 "
cast on 40 stitches
Row 1 and every alternate row: k1,p to last st, k1 [ wrong side ]
Row 2: k3,* YO, k2, sl 1, K1, psso, k2tog, k2,YO, k1. Repeat from * to last st, k1.
Row 4: k2,* YO, k2, sl 1, K1, psso, k2tog, k2,YO, k1. repeat from* to last 2 stitches, k2.
Repeat rows 1 -4 until work measures 3 1/2" at longest point ending with a purl row.
Next row: [k1,p1] repeat across row
Continue in k1, p1 rib for another 11 rows [ 12 rows rib in total ]
