Notes Crochet hook listed is optional for edging

These cute but practical knit-mitts are great as they leave your fingers free for knitting or crochet and don’t have the bulk of a true fingerless glove. They can be knitted in a couple of hours and are simple enough for a beginner. The rib stitch gives a snug but stretchy fit and the length can be adjusted to suit.
The shorter wristlets are also surprisingly warm and a real boon for gardening, horseriding and other outdoor activities where you need your hands free and gloves are not practical.

For that extra special look why not dye your own yarn with some easy-to-use Kool Aid? Kits are available from Debbie at DT Craft & Design
