Fingerless Mitts: Twisted Yarns

Posted on by MK Carroll

I finally got around to buying a hand model.  After searching online and at an art supply store, I found them at a big-chain bookstore (the one in Ala Moana, for those who are wondering).  I have been wanting one (or ten) of these for many years.

The fingerless mitt is the pattern I've been working on for Twisted handdyed yarns.  This pattern has gone through a few iterations; this one is the easiest as well as most comfortable version that also takes advantage of the gorgeous colorway (this is DK weight superwash, colorway Exile). Done in 1x1 ribbing, this can be worked flat in one piece and then seamed up the side, or worked in the round in one piece.  I'm working out a variation in a seed-pearl rib that might have some lace worked into it. I still need to format the pattern and submit it for approval; I will of course let you know if it will be offered in the Twisted shop.  This is a quick and fairly simple pattern with great gift-knitting potential!  Size shown is S/M (very stretchy) on a 7" (measured around the palm) model.
