Linda Skuja’s first real crochet project (besides a swatch that she turned into a potholder) was a sideways pair of crochet fingerless mitts, and she wore them often. This lacy pair is quick to make, even for an inexperienced crocheter. The open stitch pattern lightens up the look and makes this an accessory you can show off in almost any season.
FINISHED SIZE: Each mitt is 3¾” wide × 8¼” long (9.5 × 21 cm). One size fits most.
