Out of the need to de-stash, these mitts were born. I love this project because it really doesn’t take much yarn at all. If you’re super short on yardage, why not use up 3, 4, 5 colors at once?

These fingerless mitts are knit in the round with a basic colorwork pattern alternating with solid stripes of color. This pattern is highly customizable and can be knit up with any worsted or aran weight yarn.


90 yds. of main color (MC) worsted weight yarn

• Blocking these mitts will quickly smooth out any bumps and inconsistencies that may occur.

• You can easily make bigger or smaller mitts by adding or subtracting CO stitches. Just make sure you start with an even number.

• Optional finishing: work 1 round of slip stitch crochet around the thumb hole
