What it is: A set of toasty fingerless mittens to keep you warm through those winter months. These are easy to make if you are used to using double pointed needles or magic-loop and would also be a good first project knitting in the round. What’s even better is that they don’t require much time or
finishing and the thumb gusset is simple and looks neat.

What techniques you need:

  • magic-loop
  • using double pointed needles
  • Italian cast-on
