Silver Rails Fingerless Mitts

A few days ago, I did a refurbishing of a pattern from years back. Reading through and reworking it, I had thoughts of, “ya know, I’d really like to change this” or “I wish that were a little different” …. Then the next thought was “well, what ya waiting for?!?” So today, I offer up just that!

For the *new* pattern, I have updated the wording, slightly lengthened and changed the way the wrist portion looks as well as making them a scootch longer at the fingers… Enjoy

You can find the original pattern {shown below}, using Spud & Chloe, Fine in Bumble Bee {HERE}
