delicato mitts

a lacy confection of a glove, of finely knit fabric that skims over the hand without bulk.
the lace panel teases the eye up past the wrist and over a bare arm or beautiful sleeve.
light enough for fancy dress, or just to add a twist to an everyday outfit.
it’s fresh flower for mid-winter.

  • Notes: lacy mitts are knit at a fine gauge and feature a snug, sculpted fit. Light enough for evening wear, they also offer an extra layer of warmth on a chilly day. The lace pattern has a cabled look which is achieved with increases and decreases only—no cable needle needed!

near the top of the mitt, just before the beginning of the eyelet rib begins, there is a decrease rnd that contains an error. the instructions for this rnd should read:
Next rnd: Work lace panel row 1 over needle one, increasing 1 st at center of needle; on needle two, K1, K2tog, knit to end; on needle three, knit to 3 sts before end, K2tog, K1. [56 sts total]

    I love these Mitts and have the pattern. I started working them up and got to the Lace panel part only to find that I am confused about the SSK part. I know that in the SSK you move two stitches from left to right, one stitch at a time as if to knit. I don’t know how this pattern has you knitting these stitches after the move. Any help?
