These textured fingerless mitts are warm and cozy, with a close-fitting design that makes working or knitting in them easy and comfortable.

And, they’re the prefect match to The Bethel Hat!

Worked from the bottom up, you first knit the cuff and wrist, then increase for the thumb gusset. After rejoining to work in the round, complete the hand and then pick up stitches for the thumb.

This is a quick and easy pattern for a beginner, and experienced knitters should be able to whip up a pair of mitts in just a few hours.
