Please note:
As my dayjob doesn’t leave me enough time to come up with something new, I chose to close my business & put everything I designed so far online for free.
Have fun with it. BUT: There will be no email support when you have problems/questions, as I won’t be around anymore.



I love layered clothing and the idea of wearing fingerless mitts over mittens for decoration as well as warmth really spoke to me. But it felt too complicated. When I leave the house in the morning, I’m not in for heavy thinking about the best mitten combination. So I came up with something that looks like you combined two pieces, but is actually one piece. Convenient to wear, straight forward to knit, but still looking unique in the end. You don’t always need a glove full of cables, sometimes even a few are enough to work as a center point that gives your hands just some extra attention.

Choose between a full mitten and a fingerless version, which you don’t have to do from the start. You can just jump in and decide once you have nearly finished the fingerless version. If you want to, bind off, or go for the mitten version.
