I designed these fingerless mitts based on a simple technique. This pattern is great for beginners. It only uses garter stitch, but subtle shaping makes the gloves “hug” your hands for an optimal fit. The thumb does not have a separate covering, but instead can be used freely. These mitts are wonderful to use while practicing an instrument (I’ve used mine while practicing the piano), typing on your computer, or while working. For an extra-cold day (not here in the South), you could also layer these over a pair of gloves for more warmth. I will be releasing the finished pattern shortly.
