A perfect accessory to wear on a chilly day is fingerless mitts. They do a wonderful job of keeping your wrists and hands comfy and cozy and at the same time your fingers are free for all the tasks that need to be done: texting, typing, knitting, handling money, you get the idea. But not only do they keep your hands warm, they are also fashionable and add a little highlight to your wardrobe.

I designed these as a basic that goes with different outfits and the simple yet elegant design is suitable for women and men alike. The special attribute is the unusual placement of the thumb gusset, which is worked not even near the thumb. The mitts look a bit skew when off the hands, but fit your hands comfortably snug when worn. The mitts are rather long to stay nicely under your coat sleeves to keep out the chill.

There are two versions to choose from: easy-knit Fingerless mitts (shown in Intrepid Tulips Sock in Violet Crush), and a little-more-challenging-but-totally-worth-it fingerless gloves (shown in Intrepid Tulips Sock in Toronto Teal).

ERRATA:
When you divide for the thumb the “slip marker” is in the wrong place, as the k2tog needs to be done before the marker. It should read:
Next round, divide for thumb: K to marker, LLI, slip marker, ssk, work 22, 3 sts in Rib pattern, place next 1719, 21 stitches on waste yarn or stitch holder, cast on 3 stitches using backward loop method, work in Rib pattern to next marker, k2tog, slip marker, RLI, k to end of round.
