If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

These comfy fingerless mitts are a reminder that the sun peeks from behind the clouds on even the rainiest days.

The stockinette body knits up quick, the ribbed edging keeps them snug, and the sunburst accent row adds a cheerful touch. (And is perfect for using up leftover yarn.)

They’re supersoft and cozy when knit in Wool of Fame’s Yak Mix Fine, and pair perfectly with the Rainy Day Hat to stave off dreary weather.
