KNITSONIK Fingerless Mitts
These fingerless mitts have been designed to celebrate the places and things that you love in stranded colourwork.
The pattern contains instructions for producing three different pairs of fingerless mitts based on original charts from the KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook, including: 1. My Street, 2. The Wonders of Electricity and 3. your very own stranded colourwork designs.
The written instructions and dimensions are identical for all three pairs, but the charts are different for each pair. Two sets of charts are provided for My Street and The Wonders of Electricity enabling you to produce a pair of mitts which mirror one another. These are supplied in full colour and in black and white in case you wish to adapt the existing patterns to your own colour scheme. A blank template using the same maths as my designs is provided for you to fill with your designs if going for option 3. Please note that in all directions round refers to the round of your knitting and row refers to the row number of your chart.
