Rails to Trails Mitts
These fingerless mitts and mittens both start at the wrist with a garter rib. The gusseted “sore thumb” sits at the side so they can be worn on either hand. The mittens decrease to a point at the top. The fingerless mitts end with garter stitch rounds to match the cuff. Three sizes are included in this easy, knit and purl design. The small amount of contrast color used make these a great pattern for using up your leftovers. Think of the variations you can make!

Thanks to my tech editor and test knitters for helping me make this pattern the best it can be.
