Inspired by the popular Jaywalker sock pattern by Grumperina, these fingerless mitts are worked finger-to-cuff. Thumb placement (with gusset) is on the side, making them wearable on either hand. Zigzags on a smaller scale complete the cuff. A garter-stitch edge knit in the round gives the mitt a solid, unrolling structure at both ends. The pattern is written for two sizes (S/M & M/L).

The pattern is written for dpns but could be converted to work with circulars or magic loop. The thumb, hand and cuff patterns are written out and directions are written per row with periodic stitch counts noted to help keep you on the right track.

The zigzag pattern creates a snug fit for a mitt that is comfortable to wear whether out walking the dog, working in a cold office, or sipping a latte at your favorite cafe. Knit two in your favorite color, or be bold and knit each mitt in different colors--the choice is yours!

Errata, added 5.30.09:
For size M/L, Round 2 of the Cuff Pattern has been revised and should read as:
kfb, k2, dd, k2, kfb, kfb, k2, dd, k3, kfb
Anyone who purchased the pattern before this date should receive a message and a link to the revised version. If you have any trouble, please let me know! Cheers. j
