This is a pattern/tutorial for top-down fingerless mitts with reversible texture. Includes instructions for spinning the yarn specifically for these mitts or choosing a commercial yarn that will work with your project. Also includes gauge information so you can use a different yarn or alter the size of the mitts to fit your hands and arms.

Pattern is suitable for an adventurous beginner. Skills include:

  • Working in the round
  • Knit stitches
  • Purl stitches
  • Binding off and casting on for a thumb hole

An ideal project for handspun yarn or commercial yarn, especially great for graduated or self-striping colorways.
