These Ready Fingerless Mitts are ideal for winter running. Pop them on while you’re warming up and your hands won’t freeze, while your fingers are still free to adjust laces, watch and so on. The beauty of fingerless mitts is also that you don’t need a pocket when your hands are warm. I usually just slip my thumbs out and slide them up my wrist to make a woolly sweatband.
The mitts are quick to knit up and both the rib and pattern are sufficiently stretchy to give a close fit, without squashing fingers. This is the first of the three Ready, Steady, Go! patterns and the Steady Hat will be released at the end of February.

This pattern was originally sold to raise funds for Refuge - a UK charity for women and children suffering domestic violence. Since the introduction of new EU VAT rules, we felt it was simplest to make this pattern available for free, and to ask you to make a donation to Refuge or a local charity helping the victims of domestic violence.
