Fabulous Fingerless Mitts

F&F-MittsLast summer, I was trying to figure out the best gift to give my sister for her graduation, and being that I was completely clueless, I did what any sister would do – I asked her what she wanted and told her the budget to stay under. She emailed me later that week with her discovery. She had stumbled upon a pattern on Ravelry that was a very pretty pair of fingerless mitts, however, she didn’t like the extra ridges and wanted them to be more fitted.

So, like any knitter, I looked at the pattern and said “I can make this better”. I designed these mitts just for her, using a beautiful hand-dyed DK weight Superwash Merino from Fancy Image Yarns out of Washington. The sample photo was made using color-way “Light Grey” that can be found HERE.

Note: After additional knitting, I’ve found that using a size 3 needle works best. You may also expand your yarn choices out to include any fingering, sport, or DK weight yarn.

    I love this pattern. Ijust made my sister a feather and fan scarf i want to make her these to match but the yarn i used was worstered weight. I think casting on that many stitches would make them too big. Could you please tell me how i could adjust the pattern im a new knitter and i am unsure how to go about this. Thanks

      If you’re using a worsted weight, it would likely be easiest to use a US #6 needle and only cast on 38. I’d recommend a test-swatch to make sure they’ll be big enough, but if you’re at about 5 stitches per inch, then you’d be right around the right size for wristlets.

      I hope that helps! Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you!
