Swans Island Greensleeves PDF
Swans Island Greensleeves are a cross between a full-length opera glove and a fingerless mitt, a touch of glam without any stuffy pretension. Greensleeves are knit in a simple little allover lace pattern. These extra long mitts can be worked to fit snugly at the upper arm or with just a bit of slouch. By simply decreasing needle sizes two times, the changes in gauge achieve the desired tapering shape. Clever, simple and oh so fun! Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
