These fingerless mittens are knit top-down, from one ball of yarn. The Eye of Partridge stitches on the palm gives a nice, cushy grip, and the way the digit cover stretches farther than the palm gives your fingers more mobility, for things like holding a cup of hot chocolate, or texting!

There are three sizes: small, medium and large, so everyone can wear a pair! It is also a unisex pattern, so anyone can wear them!

I recommend knitting these fingerless mittens at the same time from both ends of the yarn, either on the same needle: like two-at-a-time socks, or on separate needles. Keep track of how far you are on each needle, as it isn’t nice to wear a matching elbow warmer and wrist warmer.
