Fingerless mitts knitted in the round, with chevrons in the cuff, and framed by faggoting, on the back of the hand as well. The thumb gusset is shaped with left and right leaning increases.
Circular or DPN needles US 2 - 2.75 mm or size necessary to obtain gauge. The top edge of the mitt and thumb can be knitted more snugly by switching to smaller needles (instructions in pattern).
Sample knitted with Lang Yarns Fantomas.
30 stitches and 42 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch (in the round)
180 yards of Fingering weight

With a background in arts and crafts and design, it was only a matter of (little) time until I started designing knitted items. I am just getting started, and loving it. My blog is: http://inner-shelter.blogspot.be/
