Knitting Fingerless Mitts

My favourite fingerless mitt pattern works up quickly and easily.  It is a 2 needle pattern by Knit Picks and is done in a rib pattern of 3 k and 2 purl.  I’ve had this pattern for ages and it was free when I got it but now it is a paid pattern.

The latest pair was made with yarn from The Grey Heron.

It’s a lovely soft Opal yarn from Germany knit on 3.25 mm needles.  I probably only used 50 grams of the 100 gram ball.

 When complete the mitts are seamed up the side.  They fit snugly and I can easily pull on other knitted mitts over the top.  I used to wear these all the time when I worked as when out on yard duty the little kids would always ask for help with zippers, shoelaces etc and it was easy to pull off the top mittens and just have my fingers free to give assistance.

There is no complicated pattern to follow and I like the longer length as they cover my wrist and arm when I’ve got my coat on.

Over time I’ve made the same pattern in various colours, some for gifts and some for me.

The weather has turned cold and we have had our first sprinkling of snow, so these are getting lots of use now.  Perfect for driving, shopping and taking photos while out walking.

Do you wear fingerless mitts?
