Here's a very thorough pattern and tutorial on making cable knit, fingerless mittens using your choice of yarn. The pattern, which has been pattern-tested by several knitters, is a ladies size. It will also be an appropriate size for teens and, if a sports weight yarn is used, it will work for kids, too.
The cables going up the backside of these mittens make your knitted pair stand out as something really special. The cables also adjust to the contours of the hand for a more perfect fit.
What you get with this purchase:
– a downloadable pattern to work in your preferred method—back and forth (with two straight needles) or in the round (with 4 double pointed needles)
– alternate versions for lengths so that you knit your mittens longer to the tips of your fingers or shorter (as pictured above) to leave your fingers more exposed.
Why fingerless mittens?
– to keep your hands warm while you drive, text, write or compute.
– to still do all of the "mommy" things you need to do, like tie toddler shoes, zip up little jackets, or buckle up kids in car seats.
– to still have full use of your fingers to do things like fish around in the bottom of your purse to locate keys or lipstick.
Fingerless mittens are very "handy" and functional accessories. You can knit them in a variety of colors or make several for your friends and family. They would make very practical and appreciated gifts!
After purchase, I will send you the link to access the online pattern.
