Stockinette and reverse stockinette separated by a slanting line of twisted stitches add texture and interest to these fingerless mitts.

Notes on gauge and yarn weight:
• Size S is knit at a gauge of 20 stitches of stockinette in 4 inches
• Size M is knit at a gauge of 18 stitches of stockinette in 4 inches
• Size L is knit at a gauge of 16 stitches of stockinette in 4 inches
• DK, worsted, or Aran weight yarn may be used, depending on the size desired and your individual gauge. Medium sample shown was knit with worsted weight on US 6/4 mm needles. Large sample was knit with Aran weight on US 7/4.5 mm needles.

Skills required:
• Long-tail cast-on
• Knitting in the round over a small circumference (using dpns, magic loop, or two circulars)
• Right and left twists
• Increasing
• Decreasing
• Picking up stitches (just four!)

• Needles of choice in size needed for gauge (sample was worked on two circulars with dpns used for the thumb gusset)
• Stitch markers
• Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

A note about needles - I knit the mitts using two circulars (my personal favorite method for small circumferences) and used three dpns to knit the thumbs while the hand was still on the needles. This gave me a nice thumb gusset with no holes and no mid-knit cast-on.

Medium sample knit in madelinetosh 80/10/10 Worsted MCN in French Grey. Large sample knit in madelinetosh Tosh Chunky in Steamer Trunk.
