Knit with 165 yards/150m sportweight yarn, these mitts feature an easy-to-work lace stitch. Its energetic, waving lines inspired the pattern's name: con brio is a musical term that means "with energy or vigor."

The mitts are quite stretchy and will comfortably fit a range of sizes. If you have narrow hands, you can easily adjust the fit by using smaller needles and/or fingering weight yarn. They don't use a lot of yarn, so they're a perfect stash buster!

I am grateful to my sisters Betsey (who modeled) and Jenny (who tech edited the pattern) for their cheerful assistance.

Thank you very much for reading—and happy spring!

I can never see too many tulips. #bonniesennott #springflowers #joy
