Free the fingers! Don't fumble with your keys or your phone just because you want to keep your hands warm. These fingerless mitts keep your hands and wrists warm and let your fingers do their thing. The mitts are knit in the round from cuff to tip and can be made in sizes from toddler to large adult. With the exception of the large adult size, the yarn in the kit is enough to make two pairs, with the colors reversed on the second pair. Circumference at palm measures 6 (6.5, 7, 7.75, 8.5)" with length from cuff to tip of 5.5 (6.75, 8.5, 9.25, 10.5)". The mitts can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Tin Can Knits.
We're making kits of this design using Brown Sheep Company's Nature Spun Sport. Brown Sheep is just across the border from us in Nebraska and they use environmentally friendly processes to dye their yarn. Nature Spun Sport is a 100% wool yarn that comes in lots of colors, so you can customize the kit to suit your style.
The kit includes the pattern and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- double pointed needles in US size 5 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- double pointed needles in US size 3
- stitch markers
- tapestry needle
You can choose any two colors of Nature Spun Sport for your kit. If you like one of the combinations shown, you can choose 720 Ash (main color) with 101 Burnt Sienna, 21 Mallard, 305 Impas Yellow, or 156 Irish Shamrock. To see other options, go to our Nature Spun Sport page to view the colors. Then return to this page, order the kit, and tell us your two color choices in the box above.
