Edgewise Mitts, named after their sideways construction are a crochet take on classic ribbed fingerless mitts. Using simple half double crochet stitches worked into back loops creates a stretchy, lofty rib. The thumb gusset is shaped with slip stitch short rows. Can be worn pulled down over the fingers, or with the hem folded. Nokta’s speckled or Core's solid colours highlight the linear texture.
