Lacy Spring Mitts Pattern

>I wanted to design some ladylike, lacy gloves that would still be warm for springtime weather. Since it’s currently snowing here, it’s unlikely that I’ll be wearing these anytime soon but here’s the pattern anyway!

Lacy Spring Mitts

3mm hook
Fingering/4ply yarn.

I used a 3mm hook and a cashmere/wool mix yarn (ColourMart 2/15NM in Natural). It’s lovely and warm but very soft.

Note: this pattern uses US terminology.
