"When I think of leafy patterns, my mind goes to Tolkien’s Ents and Entwives. No matter how many times I read those books, I still find it easy to get caught up in that world. Fimbrethil was an Entwife – one of the loveliest. This is a quick knit with lots of lace to keep your interest but easy enough to follow. Both the top of the mitt and the top of the thumb are simply a few rounds of purl stitches, but I think they marry nicely with the lace to give the design a clean look."

The instructions looks straightforward since I prefer to use magic loop and knit two at a time. I just have to make sure the thumbs are on opposite sides but that should not be too hard. Just like I have second sock syndrome, I also have it for mitts, gloves, sleeves, etc. so there is always a way around that. It is a lovely pattern. It will help me better my chart reading as well. Thank you.

These are pretty fingerless gloves that also have a pretty name. I am not sure that I would have the patience to work DK yarn on size 2 double pointed needles, but it might be worth the effort to make these as a gift for someone. I like the rows of garter stitch at the top and top of the thumb to keep the edges from rolling.
