Fingerless mitts are my favorite fast gift knit. They keep my hands warm while still allowing me to knit or draw. In colder months, I layer them with a set of thin gloves or heavy mitts for an extra layer of warmth.

Whorl Wind is a fast and easy set of fingerless mitts featuring mirrored offset cable panels surrounded by 2 x 1 rib. The rib hugs your hands for a beautiful fit.Whorl Wind is a pattern included in Bare Naked Wools’ 2019 Red Scarf scholarship fundraiser! All proceeds from the sale of this pattern through December 31, 2019 will go directly to our scholarship in partnership with Foster Care to Success.
