Perfect for a quick but satisfying carry-around project, these sleek and elegant fingerless Mitts will keep your hands warm and your fingertips free. Classic stockinette stitch provides a clean-looking background for the Eccentric 3/3 Cable that runs along the back of the hand—ensuring that while they knit up quickly, they keep your interest! Just the right amount of shaping to fit like, well, a glove, but a simple thumb hole gets finished to look like you created a thumb. These Mitts are also a great way to swatch for big sister, the Meath Pullover.
