I knit myself a pair of half-finger mitts a couple of weeks ago using the pattern posted by Andre Sue on her website. The pattern is called Tipsy, and includes both a plain and a fancy ribbed version. I modified the plain version to make myself these mitts from Blue Sky Alpacas sport weight yarn with some modifications. Here’s my project page on Ravelry where I noted my modifications.
I decided to try to embellish the mitts to jazz them up a little. I hunted through my knitting books and found directions for knitted and crocheted flowers. A dig through the stash produced a light grey alpaca lace yarn, and after some false starts and a lot of anxiety with the crochet flower I finally produced some.
I spent the afternoon arranging things onto the mitts, and here is the first one.
Fun, huh! Almost too cute to wear.

wow! those crocheted flowers really take the mitt to a whole other level. Amazing the difference.
Thanks! I’m happy with the outcome.
I agree with kelliinkc- those flowers really make your mitts something special! They are really beautiful.
Now I’m thinking about embroidering on some vines. Maybe tomorrow…
I came to comment on how the flowers really make the mitts amazing, I see we all think the same! I think the balance is just right, they are so pretty! X
That is so sweet! You did a great job with the crocheted flowers.
