Zigzag Study Hall:
It’s magical, really. By keeping your wrists and palms warm, your whole body is warm. I have a feeling, though, that you don’t need convincing from me about all the merits of fingerless mitts. You already know that with your fingers free, the range of tasks that you can accomplish — Picking up pennies from the sidewalk! Picking apples! Picking your nose! (kidding) — is far greater than with regular gloves or mittens.
Ah, fingerless mitts. I love them, I do. Even though part of me thinks that fingerless mitts are, like, so 2006, the other part of me thinks, like, I totally don’t care.
This two-page pattern includes two sizes to fit a range of hands, and uses sport weight yarn. Two 50g balls of contrasting colors will make a pair of mitts. You should know how to read charts, knit in the round, knit, purl, cast on, bind off, increase and decrease. If, by chance, you’ve never done any two-color knitting, this pattern is easy enough for your first stranded knitting project.
