For those times when it isn’t cold enough for a full mitt, but you need an extra layer of warmth on your palms, these fingerless mitts are just what you need. We’ve prepared an Easy fingerless gloves knitting pattern that is as fun to knit, as it is to wear.
The pattern can be found on the Knit Picks’ website.
Semplice Fingerless Mitts – An Excellent Palm Warmer
Designed by Stacey Winklepleck, these cozy fingerless mitts are perfect for adding extra warmth to your daily staples. The mitts are knitted in the round and are simply perfect for knitters who would like to try out knitted in the round mitts.
The mitts are available in 3 sizes ranging from small to large. The diameters ranging from 6 inches to 8 inches. That is 15 cm to 20 cm, if you prefer metric measurements.
Using Knit Picks’ Galileo Yarn, they are knitted using US3 Double-pointed knitting needles. That is 3.5 mm needles, if you are using the metric system.
You will need to employ a k2tog knitting decrease in this pattern. The k2tog, or knit two stitches together, is a basic right-slanting decrease that is very easy to make.
If you want to learn how to do the k2tog, we have a fully-illustrated, step-by-step tutorial that you may like. You can find it here: Basic Right-Slanting Decrease (K2tog)
Furthermore, you will also need to use a kfb knitting increase in this project. The kfb is a simple method of increasing your stitch count by 1 stitch. You can learn more about the kfb knitting increase on our fully-illustrated tutorial here: Learn How to Make a KFB or Bar Increase.
