Pattern Description:

These lovely fingerless mitts work up fast using easy double crochet and shell stitches. The mitts are worked in one piece starting at the palm, which is worked in double crochet stitches. A few stitches are skipped as the mitt is worked and the thumb added after the mitt is complete. The shell stitches start at the wrist, and, even though the instructions are for mitts 9.5 inches long, you could keep adding rounds of shell stitches to make them longer.
