These fingerless mittens I made in January 2014 for a friend of mine who always had cold fingers. They were a quick and straightforward knit, using a Drops Design pattern.
I used some DROPS Merino Extra Fine in Navy blue, stunning yarn for all kinds of projects. I particularly like using it for baby knits. Despite a somewhat lacy pattern, this is a very quick knit…it might have something to do with the 3.5mm needles?
I used to love wearing fingerless mittens especially when knitting. But I haven’t had much use for them here in Australia ;-).
A fellow childminder and a good friend ordered two pairs of fingerless mittens from me last year, one pair in the Spring and the other in the Autumn.
The first pair I knitted back in May 2014, using this DROPS Design pattern. I have knitted them before and posted about here.
The pattern called for DROPS Alpaca and DROPS Kid-Silk, which make the mittens scrumptiously soft.
My friend has started a ‘Forest School’ nursery in the woods with a friend close to us and so these are probably a great accessory to have.
I knitted these up in a couple of days, and even though the pattern on them looks quite intricate it is actually really easy. In fact, I’ve just recently knitted two projects with exactly this pattern and I love it!
It’s funny actually, I’ve knitted other people fingerless mittens, but have never actually knitted myself a pair.
