A fingerless version of the Multifaceted Mittens, these mitts are inspired by the natural geometric shapes of crystals. They feature an all-over stranded design that wraps around the hand, accented by the clean lines of twisted ribbing.
Two options are included for the cuffs: longer ones to tuck snugly into your sleeves, and shorter wrist-length cuffs. A full mitten version is available separately as Multifaceted Mittens.
Skills needed include stranded knitting, working a small circumference in the round, working from charts, and picking up stitches. Choose your favourite jewel tone, add a lighter contrast colour, and knit your own pair of crystal gauntlets.
For short cuffs you will need: 56yds/51.5m MC, 120yds/109.5m CC. For long cuffs: 73yds/67m MC, 139yds/127m CC.
To fit women’s medium hands, with palm circumference 7.5-8”/19-20.3cm. Suggestions for altering the length are included in the pattern.
