Pattern description from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts: “Also called fingerless gloves, these quick-to-knit warmers keep wrists and the upper part of the hands toasty while preserving finger dexterity. In mildly cold weather, they can be worn as is; when it’s really cold, they can be layered with gloves underneath. They are shown here in women’s and men’s versions. The men’s pattern is great for all ages, even ‘cool’ teenage boys who worry that handknits might be too girlish for them. One size fits just about everyone, a handy feature for gifts.”

Finished Size: Will stretch to fit hand sizes up to 9” (23 cm) around, about a man’s size large.

Finished Measurements: Circumference about 4.5” (11.5 cm) around (unstretched, will appear very skinny), and 8” (20.5 cm) long.

Yarn: Koigu Kersti (100% merino wool crepe; 114 yards 104 meters / 50 grams): #K2420 cocoa brown, 1 skein.

Needles: Two 8” (20 cm) circular needles size US 6 (4 mm). Change needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.
