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!
