I made some fingerless mittens using this pattern from Kim Salazar. Her pattern was easy to follow.
I used Meilenweit Cotton Fantasy sock yarn (45% Cotton, 42% Virgin Wool, 13% Polyamid). Since they are for Jan to wear while she lounges in her cold dungeon to read in the afternoon, I'm hoping the cotton will keep them from being too hot to wear inside.
These are a fun, quick knit, even using fingering weight yarn and US size 1 needles.
