I love the unexpected funky look of the elbow slit mittens that I found on one of the large yarn company websites. What I didn’t like is that so often those companies underestimate a knitters desire to challenge themselves, try something different or to want a finished product that doesn’t look like it was handmade.

Because of this, I decided to write my own version of the fingerless mittens, making them in my own vision with regards to look, fit and finished product.

I love these and have already worn them now that the temps are cooling :-)

Finished mittens measure about 17.5” long, and about 7” wide at the narrowest portion of the hand and 9” around at the widest portion above the elbow.

Knit in the round, these can easily be made without the elbow slit if you prefer.
Knitting progression is given in inches instead of rows in the pattern, so you can also make adjustments more easily for yarn that is a little lighter or heavier than the suggested yarn.

I think this pattern would be suitable for most ability levels, including adventurous newby knitters, even if you don’t know how to knit in the round. There are lots and lots of tutorials on youtube for those who want to learn :-)
