Last 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.
