This easy-to-knit pattern for a pair of fingerless mitts is ideal for that precious skein of luxurious hand-painted yarn. The simplicity of the slipped stitch rib pattern complements the beauty of a gorgeous hand-painted colorway without competing with it. The mitts are knit top down so that a limited amount of yarn can be divided in half and the cuff is knit until the yarn runs out or you have reached your desired cuff length.

One Size to fit Woman’s S/M
This mitt is very stretchy and easily fits a range of hand sizes. Pattern can be easily adjusted for larger/smaller hands and thicker/thinner yarns by changing needle size or adding or subtracting stitches in multiples of 5. The thumb gusset can be made bigger if necessary by adding 2 stitches to the backwards loop cast on for the thumb opening and two more rows to the gusset decreases before decrease rnd 11.
