This is the one pattern you will need for all of your holiday presents this year! Everyone loves fingerless mittens-- they are very practical and they don't take much yarn. You can spin some yourself (if you're so inclined), or you can splurge on that luxurious cashmere you can't afford to make a sweater out of!
You can make ANY size, using ANY yarn. All you need are a few measurements and a few simple calculations and you will be ready to knit! This pattern showcases hand spun yarns beautifully, but any yarn that catches your eye will do.
This is a knit pattern, worked in the round. Stitches used include knit, purl, and picking up stitches for the gusset thumb (how-to pictures included). See the last pic for one of the close-up, step by step pictures included in the pattern.
Pattern will be delivered via email in .pdf format within 24 hours of purchasing.

This is an easy pattern to start knitting with *double pointed needles. If you've been afraid of them, don't be! I avoided them for years, but they are very easy to use once you get the hang of it. Give them a try-- you will soon have a beautiful pair of fingerless mittens to gift or to wear and you will have learned a new skill!
*You can use two long circular needles or the magic loop method if you prefer.
