understated and elegant, this is a glove straight out of the 1940s.
picture it gracing the end of a good, cloth coat sleeve.
or accenting a tight sweater set at the office. nice, right?

Cloverleaf Lace Mitts
shown here in GGH Tajmahal fingering yarn, color black

  • pattern price: $5.00 US (ohio residents, please add $.30 sales tax)
  • payment method: please visit our pattern shop!
  • Suggested Yarns: Taj Mahal fingering weight, GGH Merio Soft, Fearless Fibers 4-ply cashmere or Classic merino sock/sport, Koigu KPM, Mountain Colors Bearfoot, Schaefer Anne, Lorna’s Laces Nearly Solids, Rowan 4-ply Soft, Elann Baby Cashmere or Baby Silk, or any soft fingering yarn
  • Notes: These lacy mitts are knit at a fine gauge and feature a snug, sculpted fit. They are pretty, yet warm and practical for outdoor or indoor use. The lace pattern has a cabled look, but has no cables and is super-easy to work!
    If desired, the mitt may be worked with the lace panel extending through the cuff.
  • Finished Size: 6.5�? finished circumference and fits hands up to 8�? around (using finer yarn and smaller needles will produce a smaller-sized mitt; larger needles and heavier yarn will produce a larger mitt)

  • Needles: DPNs size 3 (3.25 mm) or size to obtain correct gauge

UPDATES (all patterns purchased after dates listed will already include changes)
pattern row 4 is mislabeled as row 3; row 3 should NOT have any YOs, and is the same as rows 1, 5, and 6.

near the top of the mitt, just before the final 6 rnds of ribbing, there is a decrease rnd which contained one too many decreases. that rnd should read:
Next rnd: Work lace panel row 6 over needle one; on needle two, K1, K2tog, knit to end; on needle three, knit to 3 sts before end, K2tog, K1. [45 sts total]

  1. These are my favorite mitts of all you’ve done, Anne. I love the deep, rich color and I’m so glad you decided to leave the long cuff. It lends a perfect visual balance to the lovely lace. Maybe I’ll do these one day!

  2. I can’t make up my mind:) I like these too, and have some black Knitpicks Shimmer to make a pair of mitts to wear with my black wool winter coat.
