Bright as a summer day, those fingerless mitts are perfect to cheer up this chilly spring! I have always loved South American fabrics (Peruvian, Aztec, Andeans, etc…), and they inspired me to create these… Also, I was really in the mood for bright colors after this looooooong winter!

Knit from the bottom up, they use stranded colorwork with a tiny tiny bit of three colors at the same time (only 3 rows!)

They are worn with almost no ease.
Size small (pictured) fits a forearm circumference of 7”, wrist 6”.
Medium fits forearm 7,5”, wrist 6,5”.
Large fits forearm 8”, wrist 7”.

If you have never knitted stranded before, the pattern contains links to several videos showing the techniques used in details.

Pattern contains both charts and written instructions when applicable.
