I love fingerless mitts as you can still use your fingers for certain tasks such as using a phone. I also really love FairIsle at the moment but didn't want the pattern to be too complicated for an inexperienced knitter. These mitts follow a fairly simple shaping and the FairIsle parts accent the mitts to add interest. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round stranded knitting tubular cast-on (optional) sewn bind-off (optional) GAUGE 30sts to 10cm/4" SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18cm/7" ladies, 20cm/8" mens hand circumference SUGGESTED YARN 225 yards of Fingering weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Jamieson's of Shetland Spindrift or Jamiesons 2 ply jumper weight COLORWAY 4 colours

  • US1-1.5/2.5mm DPNs or circular needle 100cm/40in
  • 4ply yarn in 4 colours (approx. 150yds main colour, 25yds of 3 others)

I have been an avid knitter for the last 6 years or so, but have done it all my life really. I remember making a couple of huge Kaffe Fassett projects in the early 90s, but then didn't knit again until 2006 when I stopped working. I belong to two local knitting groups, one of which I organise, and am known for trying to convert everyone to knitting socks. I give impromptu sock knitting lessons at the drop of a hat!! I have recently started designing a few things myself, so far a cowl, hat and socks. I also like growing my own fruit and veg - on a small scale in the garden at the moment. I'm married to a lovely Irishman and we have a silly Golden Labrador who keeps us on our toes. I blog at
