If you have seen my Entrelac Knitting class here on Craftsy, you know I love entrelac and love trying out new ideas. These fingerless mitts were originally knit as a quick way to test an idea for a project that was included in my book, Entree to Entrelac. I have since found myself wearing the mitts often and decided it was time to make them their own pattern. Unique construction techniques are used to form the thumb gussets, but the result is a very wearable mitt. To make them symmetrical, we reverse the units. A great project to to make for yourself or give as a gift. And for you, a fun way to expand your knitting and entrelac skills!
