Inspired by a similar Icelandic accessory, meet the Beer Mitt! The perfect accessory for football games, backyard fire pits on chilly autumn evenings, or any other cool-weather beverage-drinking event.

They start out as a tube with a provisional cast-on, then half the “tube” stitches are grafted to half of the provisionally cast-on stitches. The rest of the stitches are joined in the round and knit downward, ending with the ribbed cuff. This may seem complicated, but it’s much simpler than it sounds.

The pattern is written for three sizes: small (a “root beer mitt,” to fit a child’s hand), medium (to fit a typical lady-paw) and large (to fit a gnarly man-hand). The beverages you choose to imbibe are up to you!
