A knitting pattern for ribbed and textured fingerless mitts.
The weather’s getting colder and nothing repels the autumn chill like tweed. Make yourself these textured fingerless mitts and keep warm as you work, study, or play!
This pattern is written two ways: for a knitter who is comfortable knitting in the round and switching to rows for a thumb hole, and for a knitter who is comfortable knitting flat and seaming up one side.
These mitts take around 2 skeins of Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. However, you can use any worsted or aran weight yarn you prefer.
The pattern as written provides for one length and width, but instructions are given for further adjusting the width. The stitch pattern used is charted for rounds and for rows.
