Tea Time is the fifth pattern released for my Time on my Hands e-book. These are a heavy lace pair of fingerless mitts with buttoned cuffs. The lace stands out when worked in this light and lofty worsted weight yarn. You can favorite and queue them on Ravelry.
The pattern is written in two sizes: 7.25 (8.25)”/18.5 (21) cm hand circumference length. The lace is all charted, so you will need to know how to read charts. An afterthought thumb is used so as not to interrupt the lace pattern. The mitts are worked in Brooklyn Tweed’s Shelter yarn. If you’re paying attention you’ll notice I do love locally sourced yarns! You’ll need 149-169 yards depending on the size. You’ll also need 6 little buttons to hold the cuffs closed.
The pattern is available on its own for $5 or as part of the e-book collection which gives a significant savings over buying the patterns individually. Clicking the button above will take you to an automated paypal checkout where you can pay with credit/debit card or paypal balance. The download will automatically be e-mailed to you, and added to your Ravelry library if you have an account there. Thanks to Ravelry for making this feature available to members and non-members alike!
These pretty little lace mitts are perfect to wear to afternoon tea. They’re also one of the original three patterns which came to me along with the title for the ebook. Old fashioned tea time calls to mind a chance to use delicate tea cups and old family silver. A break in the afternoon to eat tasty biscuits and ask “one lump, or two?” I knew instantly I wanted lacy mitts to complement a pretty little tea cup.
