I designed these fingerless mitts during a small burst of knitting inspiration…. and decided to run with it.
I called them the Accidental Girly Mitts because I really didn’t intend on them being so much so. Fluffy yarn + lace + pink/purple = about as girly as you can get!

I’ve had a few requests for the pattern, so I’ll throw a quick one up here. It may be a ‘use at your own risk’ pattern though, as of course, it hasn’t been tested.

Size: Women’s medium (these are quite snug, if you have larger hands/wrists, I recommend using a very stretchy yarn or upping your needle size)
Yarn: DK/8ply yarn of your choice.
I used Patons Caressa 45% wool/45% acrylic/10% mohair. Yardage will vary, but I used approx 75g, a lot less than 2 50g balls anyway.
Needles: 4mm/US size 6 or larger if you want bigger mitts.
Please note that this pattern was written when I was a fairly new knitter, and now makes me cringe at the basic-ness of it. So please take all instructions and guides as such!
