Updated on July 27, 2012

How to make fingerless mittens

The fingerless mittens are the perfect hand-knit accessory to wear during the cold winter. If your job is placed outside, fingerless mitts or gloves are the warm up tool you must bring with you to keep you warm and accessible. The main purpose of the fingerless mittens is to keep your hands warm and keep your fingers free. The most common fingerless mittens recommended for the cold winter are the wool mittens, they are soft and comfortable which makes them a popular part of the winter clothing collection.

Finishing

Put half of Lacy Cuff sts on a stitch holder, and move half of mitt sts onto a cable needle as follows:

Place mitt sts on the needle so that the center of the thumb hole lines up with the edge of the lace cuff and the lace patt is centered across the palm and the back of the hand.

Make sure that the same number of sts from the mitt and cuff are on the circular needles and stitch holders.

Put cuff over mitt so that the WS of the cuff faces the right side of the mitt, with both circular needles together on one side

and both stitch holders together on the other side.

Beg with the circular needle side, work three-needle bindoff

(see page 155) across the needles and then across the

stitch holders. Loop the end of the yarn through the last st and pull tight.

Clip on a stitch marker to mark the end of the rnd, if

desired. Work in Body pattern until the mitt measures 2" (5cm)—

approx 5 patt repeats. End after working rnd 3 of patt.

Next rnd: Work 8 sts in patt, cast on 5 (6, 7, 8) sts, work in patt to the end of the rnd.
