Autumn Fingerless Mitts

From your first scarf, to a hat, to socks, now fingerless mitts.

Simple design. Simple detailing.

This pattern can be knit over the weekend, or span of a couple of days. I used a silken DK weight wool/silk blend. It will stretch to fit most any size. It is one of the most addicting designs ever. A fun squiggly pattern repeats, and just plain ol’ stockinette. The outcome is fun, comfortable, yet offers the cute accessory piece. This pattern doesn’t have a thumb gusset, so you can slip these on either hand.

Have fun with this simple pattern. I’m sure you’ll get plenty of compliments.
Knit On!
