Kalion are opera length fingerless mitts. They feature a front panel design of slightly asymmetrical triangles which flow down the arm until the wrist where they join together to create a half diamond. An unconventional beaded rib is used for the back of the garment, with a slight variation at the front of the cuff.
The mitts are knit in the round from the cuff down to the wrist, where they are knit flat while the thumbhole is created, then they are joined back in the round again to complete the hand.
The pattern is provided with both written instructions and charts
