Cranford Mitts

Pattern: Cranford Mitts by Jane Lithgow

Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Wool Solid (Vine Green) and
Handmaiden Fine Yarn Camelspin (Rose Garden)

Needles: 2mm / US 0 circular (Magic loop method used)

This pattern is a repeat of a horse shoe lace pattern. The patterns call for four repeats before the increases for the thumb. However, I have quite long hands/arms and decided to do seven repeats before the thumb.

These mitts are quite lovely and make me feel very ladylike.

Gorgeous, I love the colours you've used. Is that a handknit in the background? The stitch pattern is awesome!

Thanks! That is actually a handknit in the background. There's a pic of it on my ravelry page (ravid: karako17)

beautiful! What a perfect idea for those of us with constantly cold hands. And your fingers look so long and slender, too. bonus!
