This pattern is for making a really nice set of fingerless mittens, created by Leila Raabe.

Twisted stitch ribbing creates a firm, structured fabric as a lovely backdrop to diamonds formed by smocked stitches (a trio of knit, purl, knit is wrapped twice after being worked) and twisted cable crosses.

The original mitts were made using Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter but any worsted weight wool yarn will do. Figure on 140 to 280 yards depending on if you want a long or a short cuff.

The "skill level" noted on the pattern is "two out of five" which I take to mean advanced beginner/intermediate knitter. This is a hard copy of the pattern, printed professionally into an eight page folio, with excellent and clear charts.

A lovely piece.
