I’ve been on a roll lately knitting lots and lots of fingerless mitts. Over the years, I’ve been collecting different patterns with a view to eventually getting to knit all sorts of garments. Fingerless mitts is the latest craze. I found this really easy pattern to start off with: Good Times Fingerless Mitts and have proceeded to knit quite a few pairs!
What I love about knitting mitts is you can use a lot of your leftovers from larger projects. They’re quick to make and perfect to wear in cooler weather. I love the fact your fingers are free so it’s easy to type or handle money while the rest of your hand remains toasty warm 🙂
The edging of these mitts was knitted in Fiberific Sombrero 8ply and the main part was knitted in my handspun 100% merino in the colourway Outback.
The edging in these mitts was knitted in Moda Vera Pure Wool 8ply and the main part in my handspun.
The ribbing in these mitts is knitted using Cleckheaton Country 8ply and the main part I used Candy Apple Lane BWM Luxury 8ply in the colourway Liquorice Allsorts. You’ll no doubt remember this colourway from my Liquorice Allsorts Shawl 🙂
I used Lotus Winter Sun to make these mitts.
These are the very first mitts I made using Sullivans Aztec which has an alpaca component making them really soft.
And that’s just the start. I’ve made lots more using different patterns which I’ll show you at a later date. So if you haven’t made fingerless mitts previously and you’ve been toying with the idea, I would highly recommend that you start! The thumb area is not complicated so long as you follow the very easy instructions in the pattern.
I had so much fun mixing and matching yarns for the ribbed edging and the main part of the mitts to give a different look.
If you’re interested, I have some mitts for sale on my MelsNattyKnits FB page.
Let me know if you use this pattern; I’d love to hear your comments on how you go 🙂
Until next time.
