These fingerless mitts feature stockinette and reverse stockinette separated by a slanting line of twisted stitches which add texture, fit & visual interest. DK, worsted, or aran weight yarn may be used, depending on the size desired and your individual gauge.
Designer Laura Aylor recommends a hand-dyed, plied yarn. The plies add strength to the fibers while preventing pilling. The tighter the twist, the less pilling.
