Barnacle Fingerless Mittens with Thumb Gussets!

Mitten is about 10 inches long and 3.5 inches at the widest point unstretched.  There is a lot of stretch in these. My hand is almost 8 inches in circumference at the widest point and these fit me.

Pattern: Materials:  One ball of Cascade Llama Lace yarn (used double throughout).  This yarn has 601 yards per ball so you will have plenty left over.  I used 58grams or about 349 yards. You can work from the centre and outside of the ball simultaneously so
