Fingerless mittens pattern

Sorry for the delay! About the fingerless mittens pattern:

manusi mov

I used Angora Alize 2 strands first time, now I will use Red Heart Margareta or Mohair 2 strands, 50 g / 300 yds per skein (you need a medium weight yarn), and a 5 mm (H/8) crochet hook.

Level: Beginners intermediate. 2-4 hours project, so I hope it isn’t too late for last minute gifts:D
