Crochet Kitten

Missus Otis Mitts

A Hundred Ravens yarns had asked for fingerless gloves that were just a little bit steampunk. Well that to me just screamed for something lacy! I chose for the body of the mitt a knit-look cabled stitch, for which I’ve included a stitch diagram, and the cuff is nothing more than the standard shell pattern. It’s designed with negative ease in mind so that it stretches comfortably over your hand for a snug fit.
