Daisy Stitch Hand Warmers. Dragon Scale Mitts. Hand Warmers + Flip-top Mittens. Since making the Cashmere Fingerless Gloves, we've had lots of requests for slight pattern alternatives.
I agree that no one pattern can answer all of our hand-warming needs, so I came up with a couple of variations on the original theme: Hand Warmers and Flip Top Mittens. The Hand Warmers eliminate the challenge of knitting the fingers without sacrificing the elegance of the original pattern. And the Flip Top Mittens do the double duty of warming cold fingers on some days and liberating busy fingers on others. Both patterns still use only one skein of Jade Sapphire's amazing 6 ply cashmere and one skein of Blue Sky Alpaca's Sportweight Alpaca. Now we can all be equipped for whatever circumstances come our way: unseasonably warm weather in New York or snowstorms in Seattle! To make the original version please revisit our Cashmere Fingerless Gloves Project Journal. The Materials 1 skein of Jade Sapphire's 6 ply Cashmere, 100% mongolian cashmere. The Pattern Gauge Finished Size Note Cuff Gusset. PURL DIVA*: Holidaily (1) - Fast And Fearless Fingerless Mitts.
I've had requests to continue the Holidaily* series again, so here is the first one, and it is a gift from me to you! No, I'm not giving you a seashell, silly, I'm giving you my pattern for Fast and Fearless Fingerless Mitts! These mitts work up quickly (the test knitters and I made each pair in four hours or less). They are made in K1P1 ribbing, which creates a wonderful stretchy fabric that sort of looks like stockinette, at least when it isn't stretched out. The pattern also incorporates two different types of increases as a design element. The test knitters and I made our mitts with Malabrigo, which is great to work with. But wait! Here are a few little details that might be helpful before you download the pattern: The pattern requires Click HERE to download the pattern.
