When I first saw fingerless mittens, I thought, “How silly. My fingers will freeze.” What I discovered after trying a pair is that I wear them much more than my regular mittens because I can do just about everything without having to take them off. It’s surprising how warm they keep my hands. I like the ribbing because it gives a nice snug fit but not too tight, not too loose, just right… thus the name, Goldilocks Mittens.

Size can be changed by casting on more or fewer stitches in multiples of four or by changing needle sizes.

Fingering weight yarn is held double to make a nice quick knit. I like the way it blends variegated or semi-solid yarn colors. You could also use DK or worsted weight yarn (single strand, of course).

I will add a pattern soon for the longer version shown in the second photo.

We’re having a KAL in the Madelinetosh Lovers group for MadMay. Come join us and knit along.
