These fingerless mitts can’t always ensure a good hand, but they will ensure warm ones! Whether you’re playing Solitaire or Five Card Draw, bring some knitterly style to the game by wearing these whimsical mitts. The various motifs keep the knitting engaging, and the pattern includes sizes to fit everyone in your four-some. Not into cards? Choose just one or two of the motifs to repeat on the mitts - all hearts, diamonds with variegated colors, or how about green clubs for a shamrock theme? Have fun with this versatile pattern!

This design is suitable for knitters who are experienced with working stranded knitting in the rnd. Mitts are knit bottom up, from arm to fingers, using stranded knitting technique. Directions are written for working in the round on double pointed needles, but could be adapted to any circular technique. Colorwork directions are given in charted form only. Pattern has 3 pages and has been professionally tech edited and fully test knit to be clear and free of errors.

Sizes: Adult S (M, XL) with hand circumferences of approximately 6 (7 1/2, 9) in/ 15.25 (19, 22.75) cm. Size M will fit most adult hands. If your hand measurement falls between sizes choose your size based on whether you prefer loose mitts or snug mitts. Sample shown in size M on a model with a hand circumference of 7 1/2 in/ 19 cm.
