The Fiery Searcher Fingerless Mitts pattern is a classic cables-and-lace design by Bonnie Sennott. To make these mitts, you'll need 250 yards/229m fingering weight yarn and one set of US #2/2.75mm dpns.
The pattern provides instructions for knitting a women's size medium, which should fit a wide range of hand sizes. For a smaller mitt, go down a needle size and/or use a light fingering weight yarn. For a larger mitt, go up a needle size and/or use sportweight or DK weight yarn.
The mitts are worked in the round on double-pointed needles (dpns). Skills required include standard knitting techniques and stitches, as well as cabling with a cable needle. The stitch patterns are given in both written form and in charts. Explanations are given for all stitches.
