These sweet Black & White Handwarmers that are perfect to keep the chill out during the transitioning seasons, as well as for those unexpected cold snaps! The easy to knit stitch pattern is addictive and will fly off your needles in no time. Choose two contrasting colours as shown here for a modern graphic look, or two subtly different colours to suit your own personal taste.

Fingerless mitts are worked in the round from the cuff up. The thumb opening is created by working back and forth in rows. When changing yarn colours for stripe sequence, loosely carry yarn up the side rather than breaking yarn for each colour change. An optional chain stitch appliquรฉ is worked along the side edge and around thumb opening as a decorative addition and also to hide the round joins. Work this chain firmly, but not too tight. This pattern is written to use DPNs, however it can also be worked with magic loop or very short circular needles if you prefer.
