Based on old twisted stitch motifs from Austria, these fingerless mitts are a combination of tulips and staggered chains of windows.

Mitts are worked in the round from the cuff toward the fingers, widening for a thumb gusset, then brought back together at the fingers. Gusset sts worked in rib to finish before finishing.

Coordinates with Edelweiss socks.
