Features: * Right and left hands are interchangeable * Can be made to any length * Ideas are included for two types of thumb panels, so you can customize your own and make a work of art out of each pair. * Pdf, written instructions, no charts. These fingerless mitts invite you to play with a small amount of special yarn, be it new yarn candy, a sentimental leftover, or perhaps your first handspun. The samples showcase a splash of color, like a jolt of sugar running up the side of each mitt. Making a colorful hand with a neutral stripe would be striking, too. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increasing short rows (instructions in pattern) can be made without short rows if you choose GAUGE 22 sts and 40 rows in 4"/10 cm in garter stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The pattern given is for an adult medium hand and will fit a range of adult sizes with varying degrees of ease. Short rows make it possible to adjust size as you knit.
