These fingerless mittens are simple to knit. They are knitted in the round. The pattern is written for dpns but are easy to adapted for small circulars.

I used Kingfisher in the WYS Signature 4 ply Country Bird range but are great for any sock yarn.

I designed them to use up any left over yarn from knitting socks, they use 35g/140m but can use less by making the cuff shorter.
I designed it with a longer cuff to go under coats and keep wrists nice and warm.
I played around with how to make the increase fun on the thumb, I love the way it increases out, I hope you do too!
