The culmination of my quest for perfectly fitting fingerless mitts. The pattern incorporates all my favorite elements. Instructions are given for two cuff styles and a unique roomy thumb that fits everyone well.

The fold-down top element was inspired by these lovely mitts, and these, and these. The thumb forchette is described in June Hemmons Hiatt’s treatise, The Principles of Knitting.
