What do you do with your hands while walking outdoors on a chilly day? Keep them in your pockets, pull your sleeves over them, or wear mittens? If you are like me, checking your cell every now and then, fingerless mitts are the way to go.
These mitts are worked in rib and mock cables. A gusset makes them fit perfectly and feel comfy.
The pattern comes in three widths. Ribbing’s stretchy quality make it fit most hands. Length is adjustable. The pattern is charted and written out.

Some comments from test knitters:

  • I took my mitts to my Knitting Guild meeting yesterday. The mitts were a big hit! Everyone remarked on the great fit and loved the pattern on the thumb. And then the LYS had a “yarn tasting” with more people there and the mitts made the rounds. It was amazing- all different ages, sizes of hands- and they fit everyone! Congratulations on a great pattern!

  • I love the fit! I’m not usually a fingerless gloves person (I give them away), but I think these will be mine!

  • Love them and love the pattern.

Thank you all for testing the pattern and lovely comments!
