These quick fingerless mitts use three colors of fingering weight yarn held double for a worsted gauge and marled fabric effect. The palm and thumb shaping are worked sideways followed by the cuff, thumb, and finger sections which are all worked in the round. A variety of textured stitch patterns add a pleasing patchwork feel to the mitts.
