Basic Skills Necessary:

  • crossed stitches
  • twisted stitches
  • colour knitting
  • Despite this being knitted flat, it requires some skill and concentration, as you will need to combine crossed stitches with eg buttonholes or colour knitting

Pattern Description:

A fingerless mitten pattern with super-flexible sizing, funky colours, and a great opportunity to show off your favourite buttons. The mittens are knitted flat, and then wrapped around the arm. The location of the buttons determine the size. For the thumb, instructions are given for either knitting flat, or in the round. Crossed and twisted stitches provide the necessary elasticity to keep the mittens in place and prevent them from sagging.

The pattern provides detailed instructions (9 pages) with illustrations.
