Soft, warm fingerless mitts for the princess in your life, even if the princess is YOU! Pattern coming for matching Jasmine Scarf and socks.

Materials:
1 or 2 50 gr balls Mini-Mochi (195 yds/50 gm) [see Notes below]
Crystal Palace Bamboo DPN US 1.5 (2.5mm) needles or size needed to obtain gauge
Stitch markers
Cable needle
Waste yarn
Tapestry needle

Finished Size: 6" wrist circumference (blocked and relaxed)

Gauge: 8 sts/12 rows per inch in stockinette stitch (blocked and relaxed) 8.5 sts/inch in stockinette (unblocked)

Notes:
= It is possible to knit both mitts with one ball of Mini-Mochi if you don't mind fraternal color changes in the mitts.
=  It might be possible to knit identical mitts from one ball of Mini-Mochi if you knit the second mitt from the opposite end of the ball and can find the color repeat. Otherwise, buy an extra ball; just in case.
= For a larger mitt, it is recommended that you go up one needle size.
