Elysian Fingerless Gloves


These mitts were born when I found a skein of decadent angora yarn in my stash and needed a pattern that used only one skein. They are worked in the round from the fingers down to the cuffs with a roomy afterthought thumb. Instructions are given for both a long and a short cuff. The wrist is shaped by changing the size of the needle. The simple, mirrored lace pattern is presented in both chart form and written instructions; you choose the method you prefer. They are quick and easy to make.

  • Yarn Used: 1 ball Angora Extra or Louisa Harding Kimono Angora Pure
  • Yarn Substitutes: I strongly encourage you to use the suggested yarn. But, Classic Elite Lush, Frog Tree sport-weight alpaca, and Rowan Kid Classic are good substitutes.
  • Gauge: Approximately 18 sts/26 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in stockinette stitch worked in the round on size 4.5mm needles.
  • Size: Worked at the suggested gauge and after a firm blocking, the finished mitts are 8—9.5 inches long and measure approx. 7.5 inches in circumference. They will fit a woman’s size small/medium hand. The size can be altered slightly during blocking or you can use a larger or smaller needle to obtain a looser or tighter gauge.
  • Techniques: Channel Island cast on; picot bind off; easy lace; afterthought thumb
