Simple stockinette gloves with half fingers to fit a man’s small hand, or a woman’s large. Full fingers can easily be substituted. Thumb is placed slightly toward the palm, and pinkie finger is lower than the other three fingers.
These fingerless gloves feature a decorative lace rib pattern that looks like strings of tiny cables on top of each mitt and a simple ribbing on the palm side for comfort. Cable needles and cable knitting experience is not necessary because the mock cables are actually created with a basic slipped stitch sequence followed by a yarn over in an easy to memorize five row pattern.
These mitts fit an average ladies’ hand size. The size can be adjusted by playing around with the gauge. The easy all-over lace pattern and DK weight yarn will give you a lovely pair of mitts that’s fairly quick to knit. Make a pair for a gift, and one for yourself!
Quick, simple, and knit in the round - you’ll want to make a pair in all your favorite colorways! These handwarmers are cozy for cool spring or fall days spent outdoors or chilly evenings under the afghan in winter, and perfect for summer night campouts.
I whipped up these cabled fingerless mitts for my mother-in-law using just 2/3 of a skein of Koigu. They came out so cute, it was really, really hard to gift them away. But I did…then promptly went out and bought another skein – in the exact same colorway – to make a pair for myself!
