Perfect for learning short rows, these simple garter stitch, fingerless mitts are knit flat and shaped with short rows. Choose to finish them with either a simple seam or by grafting. Sizing is included from little kid through to adult large, so the whole family can match!

If you are looking for ways to use up your leftovers, these mitts are perfect. Several sizes use less than 50g of yarn, meaning you can get creative with your stash and knit something satisfying without the expense of new yarn. Fingerless mitts make a great gift for any age, ensuring toasty hands that can move with ease.
