A quick DK knitted fingerless mitten pattern with a folded cuff and simple colourwork. These cozy mitts are perfect for crisp autumn days, and great for anyone who needs fingertips free but suffers from cold hands! Written for 2 adult sizes using 4 colours (25g each) - 3 complementary and 1 contrast – so you can have fun putting
together your own palette. Worked from the folded cuff down with
thumb cast on separately.
