The fingerless mittens are knit in the round on DPNs and have a simple 2x2 ribbing. The hand is knit in stockinette stitch with increases for the thumb gusset which gives the mitten a nice fit. These fingerless mittens are an incredibly beginner friendly project. After the written pattern, you will find a detailed photo tutorial. The pictured model is the child mittens, model 1.
