WOL’s Knit Mitts

Knit in a sport yarn, color navy.

WOL’s Knit Mitts

These are fingerless mitts I designed for use in situations where you want the warmth but need the ability to use your fingers for, say, turning the pages of a book, or knitting, or typing. They’re stockinette on the palms to minimize bulk, but ribbed all the way up on the knuckle side for added warmth.  The cuff is long enough to be turned up if desired.

Materials:
Approx. 50 g of DK or sport weigh yarn, 11-12 wpi.
Double pointed needles size 3.25mm/US3 (Or a 40-inch circular needle to do both at the same time,)
Stitch markers.

Knit in Caron Simply Soft yarn, Med: 4, 170 g / 6 oz, 288 m / 315 yds , color Medium Grey

Abbreviations:
p# = place a marker at this point.
# = position of marker
(k1, p1) x11 = repeat the instructions within the parentheses 11 times.
K1tbl = knit 1 through the back loop.

My burrow, "La Maison du Hibou Sous Terre" is located on the flatlands of West Texas where I live with my computer, my books, and a lot of yarn waiting to become something.

One thought on “WOL’s Knit Mitts”

  1. A woman I commuted with gave me a pair of mitts done in sock yarn, with cables on both front and back between the ribbed parts. They’re great for using the computer on a cold morning.
