Fingerless Mitts

I received to large skeins of James C. Brett Marble Chunky last year. The yarn is a really pretty two ply in shades of pink (Color MC12). Many of the women on my Christmas list love pink, so I thought it would be great to whip up some warm accessories for them.



This yarn is very soft for 100% acrylic. I love that it will be completely machine washable. I knit these with Size 7 DPN's, as I wanted them to be tight enough to stay warm.

I was initially concerned that the designer wouldn't indicate what rows were cable rows.... but she did (rows #17, 23, 29). The only real modification I made to these cabled mitts is that I made the cable on the right hand turn in the opposite way (Cable 6 back). For the hand, I bound off on 5th 1x1 ribbing row. On the thumb, I knit 1x1 ribbing for 2 rounds, then bind off in 1x1 ribbing for a total of 3 rib rows.



These mitts are a little short on the hand, but they keep your fingers completely accessible which can be a plus when you work with your hands a lot. If you're wearing a sweater anyway, then these will still work great to keep your wrists warm as you're working. This is a fast, fun project that can easily be completed in an evening.

  1. I like 'em! And there's no reason, if you have enough yarn, to do more ribbing at the top or an extra cable twist to get your fingers covered a bit more. :)

    1. Calophi, You're absolutely right. I ended up liking that they were pretty small, but if I use this pattern again I will probably add some more rows.

  3. Den åndbare åndedragsdragt fra Eatlyx af SMS-polypropylenstoffer

    meget åndbar, modstår også skadeligt støv og stænk,

    ifølge type 5 og 6. Det er derfor blødt og derfor meget velegnet til en lang række anvendelser, hvor brugeren af tøjet skal beskyttes, og miljøet ikke må forurenes af fibrene fra tøjet.

    Eatlyx har flade sømme overtrukket med en varmeforseglet strimmel i overensstemmelse med dekret af 7. marts 2013 om valg af personligt beskyttelsesudstyr, der anvendes til operationer, der involverer en risiko for eksponering for asbest Asbestovertræk Cat 3 Type 5/6
