1 Shot, 2 Shots, 3 Shots Fingerless Mitts

Available on Etsy & on Payhip


When I thought of designing a pair of fingerless mitts, espresso shots came to mind. Espresso shots are created by forcing almost boiling water through finely ground coffee beans.

For these mitts, the cable pattern is a braid of three strands repeated three times around the mitts. There are 3 length options appropriately named 1 Shot, 2 Shots, or 3 Shots.

So grab a shot (or two or three) of espresso, your yarn and your needles, and cast on your mitts. Happy Knitting!


These fingerless mitts are knit using the magic loop method (although the purchaser could easily adapt it for two circulars or double points).

This pattern includes written instructions and a chart.

A stretchy cast-on and loose bind-off are used in this pattern.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, M1RP, M1LP, purl two together (p2tog), slip slip purl (ssp), slipping stitches, and cables.

This pattern includes instructions for Adult Small, Medium, and Large mitts with 3 length options.
