This pattern is available for free.

Limpets, those cheery, little-used sideways shells, star in the lacy cuffs of these feminine fingerless gloves. Mitts are worked top down, starting with a stretchy, decorative picot band stitched flat. Band is joined after the second row, then mitts are worked in the round to the end. Thumb gussets are worked in one with the body of the mitt, with the option of picking up stitches later to make a longer thumb.

The Limpet Mitts are moderately stretchy and meant to fit snugly. Pattern includes specific sizes, but is very easily customised for a perfect fit.

This free pattern includes instructions in Mostly Plain English, plenty of photos, and video tutorials to walk you through each step.

Erratum: Part 1, Round 5 contained an error in the written pattern and the phototutorial. (The video tutorial was correct.) Pattern has been corrected to read as follows: “Hdc in first hdc, CH 1, skip chain, make limpet….”
