Inspired by Mrs. Fitz’s Knit Bits from Outlander, these feminine fingerless mitts in three sizes are worked flat and seamed together. A textured palm and back with simple edged thumbhole, snug rib wrist with a bit of a bow, and lacy rib forearms make for a fit that promises to keep chilly drafts at bay.

Easy to knit and fun to wear. Fully reversible hand to hand. Make a pair for yourself this weekend!

Sizes
Small fits 6.75” palm by 6” wrist circumference
Medium fits 7.25” palm by 6.5” wrist circumference
Large fits 7.75” palm by 7” wrist circumference

Materials
Great for stash diving! Only 120-165 grams of sport weight yarn in total needed for palm and back, wrist, and forearm:

Color A (palm and back) — 30 grams of sport weight yarn. Shown in Juniper Moon Farms Herriot color 1, Talc

Color B (wrist) — 30 grams of sport weight yarn. Shown in Malabrigo Rios color 862, Piedras

Color C (forearm) — 50 grams of sport eight yarn. Blue Sky Fibers Metalico color Platinum (fingering weight held doubled)

12 yards of bulky boucle or other similar weight novelty yarn

1.5 yards of .25” diameter jumbo or two 18” lengths of I-cord (4 grams fingering weight yarn 3 sts wide on smaller needles) for tie

US size 6 (4.25mm) straight or circular needles (or size needed to attain gauge)

US size 8 (5.0mm) straight or circular needles (or two sizes up from those used to attain gauge)

Wool or yarn needle

Gauge
24 stitches x 40 rows = 4” using smaller needles in basketweave pattern stitch (palm and back) after blocking.

Note: As this is a fitted accessory, gauge is important to achieve results shown. Different size needles, yarn, and/or gauge may require more yardage than noted above as well as different finished measurements.

Considered an easy pattern due to knitting flat/seaming. Stitches used: knit, purl, and yarn over. Dropped stitches.
