The Cellular fingerless mittens are inspired by intercellular structures and leaf membranes of plants. They’re knit sideways and flat, then seamed, with short rows providing the shaping. Play around with your favorite color combination or choose a one color version!
The Cellular Mittens are fan shaped and are knitted flat from side to side, then seamed. The mittens are a succession of garter stitch in the main colour and stockinette worked in short rows in a contrasting colour.
