These quick and easy fingerless mitts are a perfect project for using up those leftover bits of yarn that we all have hiding in our stashes.
They look great in both solid multi-colored yarns. The open airy pattern makes the most of limited quantities of yarn. The ribbed design results in a very stretchy mitt that will fit a variety of sizes, making the pattern perfect for gift knitting.
Because they are so stretchy, exact gauge isn’t important. Instead of worrying about gauge, I recommend using a needle 2 sizes larger than you would use if you were making socks from the yarn you’re working with. For example, if I were making socks from the yarn shown, I would use size 0 needles. To make the mitts, I used size 2.
