Are you a beginner who wants to knit a pair of fingerless mitts but you’re not ready to knit in the round yet?

Then this pattern is for you!

You knit a simple ribbed rectangle, seam the long edge, and (Ta-Da!) fingerless mitts are yours.

Don’t be scared by the small size. The fabric has a lot of stretch and the pattern includes ideas for making the mitts wider and/or longer.

This pattern is suitable for a beginner who knows how to cast on, knit, purl, cast off, and seam.
