I knitted my first pair of fingerless mittens. This is a free pattern on Craftsy. This pattern had me knit in two colors. I used your basic acrylic yarn and size US 8 10 inch straight needles. These were easy because you knitted flat and seamed them up leaving a "thumb" hole. My seaming needs a little work. Of course, I knitted them in "Giant" Orange and Black!
After making these gauntlets, I am ready to learn to make an actual thumb on fingerless mitts.
I knitted this from the Knitting Calendar 2014. I used Lily Sugar n' Cream cotton and size US 7 10 inch straight needles. I like to knit dishclothes, it is a good way to practice new stitches. It is like doing big swatches.
