Palmistry Mitts

a clean lifeline



Palmistry is the art of reading the future using the lines of the hand. The lifeline is the most important line in palm reading, and it is the star of these mittens. The thumb gusset is easy to work and creates a clean ridge along your lifeline. If you are looking for a mitten adventure, I predict you will find what you seek in the Palmistry mittens. The Palmistry pattern includes instructions for fingerless or full mittens. This pattern looks great in solids and speckles, but is particularly fun in self-striping yarn.
