Constructed to be knitted in one piece these fingerless gloves are great to show off your self-striping yarn They have a garter stitch “ribbing” on both ends (fingers and wrists). Except for the thumb (knitted right in the end) the mitts are knitted flat.
They are called U-Turn mitts not only because the lower part froms an inverted U, but also since they are constructed by actually knitting a U-Turn :)
