knitting pattern to make fingerless mitts

mist layers

These hand knit fingerless mitts are knitted in 3-ply (sock) yarn. This knitting pattern provides you with instructions for ladies gloves. This is a great knitting pattern for the first time you try to knit in the round.

These fingerless mitts are knitted using self-striping sock yarn. This type of yarn is readily available from indie yarn dyers and saves you from sewing in all the ends that you’d have if you were changing yarn every time you changed stripe colour. The self-striping sock yarn used in this pattern changes colour every three metres of yarn, which is three or four rows of knitting.

The mitts are light-weight but warm, perfect for those fresher Spring and Autumn days. The pattern is knitted in the round on double-pointed needles. There are no increases or decreases to work. The only slightly trickier part is where you break the rounds to leave a hole for the thumb.
