Named “Roughshod” after the rustic look of the Linen St in the hand, these fingerless mitts almost look woven. Knit sideways, the pattern is was designed to show off variegated and hand-painted yarns. Worked flat with an afterthought thumb, it’s a great pattern for beginners to learn intermediate techniques, because it’s basically a modified square washcloth!
