I wanted to design a light weight fingerless mitt that would be a good transition piece to wear on those days that aren’t too cold but have a bit of a chill in the air. For the traditionalists, this pattern makes a great full mitten as well. Instructions are included for both versions.
The pattern design comes from a Japanese stitch dictionary. I started designing and working on the mitts here in Portland, Oregon, and they were completed just outside of Portland, Maine, this last September when I attended a knitting retreat on an island off the coast of Maine.

Should read: Repeat Gusset rounds 2 and 3 6(7) more times.
