Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting, knitting in the round, reading charts

Pattern Description:

These adorable, fun fingerless mitts capture the surf vibe of sunny Southern California, featuring surfboards on the palm and back of the hand, palm trees on the thumb gussets, and waves on the top & bottom borders. Of course the surfboard and palm tree stitch patterns are original.

They're super fast to work up, with all the little details I like to include: comfortable, anatomically correct, offset thumb gussets; mirrored images; workable floats; lifted increases for the gussets; and more.
