Fingerless mitts

I have never ever knitted mittens, fingerless or otherwise, on two needles. Until now. I don’t know what made me try.

Fingerless mittens

I had tiny balls of some nameless yarn. I knitted two rectangle pieces, did the seam and left a little gap for the thumb. Done.

These fingerless mitts are ok but I have to say that I do prefer knitting mittens in the round – doesn’t everyone? Unless, of course, there is a reason why they are done on two needle, like these. I want to try and make those babies one day.

When out and about, I often have fingerless mittens in the rucksack. I swap my proper mittens to fingerless mittens when having a break. This way the hands still keep relatively warm but the grip on a mug is a bit more secure. Also, easier and tidier to hold on to one’s muffin!

Happy knitting!

  1. I too prefer knitting in the round, but it’s fun to mix it up. I’m making a tam right now that is flat and seamed. We’ll see how it goes!
