This pattern creates a pair of quick-to-knit fingerless mitts in a cosy, inexpensive bulky wool. Add a strand of laceweight mohair for a touch of softness and colour. Or knit them entirely out of a bulky-weight mohair for a warm and fluffy alternative.

One skein of the Cascade Eco or Eco+ is enough to knit four pairs of these mitts. Share a skein with a friend or two. :)

A crochet hook is used only to work a short chain at the top of the mitt that is then formed into a loop buttonhole. Complete crochet-phobes could work a 2-stitch I-cord instead.
