This design was actually inspired by another design for Entrelac fingerless mitts. I have shortened it, written it for knitting on 2 circular needles rather than double points, and improved the instructions so it fits better, taking care of the problems I had with the other pattern.
This design works best with yarns that have long color repeats. The model was made using Ty-Dy Socks from Knit One Crochet Too. Other yarns I would recommend are Noro Kureyon Sock, Mini Mochi from Crystal Palace Yarns, Poems Sock by Wisdom Yarns, and Zauberball by Schoppel-Wolle. (I'm curious how it would look using some of the Jacquard yarns, though.)

I've just learned how to entrelac. I'm so excited to have found your pattern because this is exactly what I was looking for to make for myself. I have until next winter...give or take 5-6 months to get them done.
As an admitted entrelac addict (4 scarves, 2 blankets and a felted tote), I am in love with this pattern and can't wait to make them. Thank YOU!!!!!!!!
This is just what I was looking for to go with the entrelac scarf I am making. Thank you soooooooo much for sharing your lovely pattern. Your mitts are gorgeous and I hope I can make mine turn out as nice as yours. Blessings Sheri in Oregon
This is one of the most interesting pattern for knitting that I have ever seen! I had never heard of this until today - I am going to give it a try - any suggestions for making these in "kid" size? My neices would love these!
The pattern calls for two 24-inch size 1 circular needles. Is that right??
Yes, that is right. It's knit on 2 circular needles.
