Lady Eowyn of Rohan was no delicate flower. She could organize her countrymen as they relocated to Helm's Deep, she could wield a sword better than many men, and she rode into battle where she killed the Lord of the Nazgul. Lady Eowyn would have appreciated the practicality of fingerless mitts because they will allow one to get into (and out of) all sorts of situations while still keeping one's hands warm. The intricate cable braid and honeycomb details cover the back of the hand while the ribbing of the cuff points gracefully into the palm.
These mitts are knit in fingering weight yarn in three sizes. They are designed to fit snugly (it's hard to kill Witch-Kings with floppy mitts), but if you'd like your mitts to have a bit more room, just go up a size or use one needle size larger. All stitch patterns are presented in both charted and written format.
