Princess Mitts

These are the delicious fingerless mitts from the back cover of the Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2010 issue. In one of the photographs they're shown with a natural companion, the Princess Muff. This is an exceptional design, graceful and distinctive without being hard to work. The look is cabled, but it's achieved through k2tog's and ssk's, not cabling at all. They're knit with a single strand over an 8-stitch, 16-round pattern that's both charted and written out; easy instructions are given for the placement of the right or left thumb gussets.

Hi! As the test knitter for this pattern, I can tell you that the palm was not extra gappy on me, and I don't have an enormous hand. :) I am guessing that perhaps the model had very delicate hands? I can also say that the yarn is DELICIOUS, and I enjoyed the pattern!

Very lovely, but why the gaping palm?
Usually fingerless mitts and gloves are fitted rather snugly.
