Lacy Spring Mitts Pattern

I wanted to design some ladylike, lacy gloves that would still be warm for springtime weather. Since it's currently snowing here, it's unlikely that I'll be wearing these anytime soon but here's the pattern anyway!

Lacy Spring Mitts












3mm hook
Fingering/4ply yarn.

I used a 3mm hook and a cashmere/wool mix yarn (ColourMart 2/15NM in Natural). It's lovely and warm but very soft.

Note: this pattern uses US terminology.

I found your pattern through Ravelry. I'm making fingerless gloves for women re-enactors of the Civil War era, as this April is the 150th year; apparently ladies wore fingerless gloves then. Your pattern is similar enough to one in an authentic pattern book (except the cuff), that I think I'll adapt it. Love your patterns!
