Free Knitting Pattern: Thistle Fingerless Mitts

Here is the promised link to the fingerless mitts I designed in relation to last week's Scottish Knitting and Crochet Blog week.  The mitts pictured here are short--designed to stop just before the knuckles, but the pattern includes instructions for lengthening them if the knitter so desires.  

My knitting pattern is perhaps a bit wordy for a design that is relatively simple.  I spelled out detailed instructions for each row, making the pattern a bit long, but doing so helped me keep track of things and will probably aid the novice knitter.  Click here for the PDF.  







I've started working on a design for a variation of the Thistle Mitts--shown below.  I'll post the pattern soon.  Fingerless gloves knit up so quickly, I think I'll make a bunch for next Christmas--but first I have to complete some works in progress and also get started on a Knitalong (KAL), for which I'll be making a great Shetland Triangle shawl.  Information on the KAL can be found at Girls in Sheep's Clothing.  I ordered the yarn today and will post soon.

  2. Wow, you have been so active while I've been off finishing off the semester! I know I've said it before, but you constantly amaze me with what you are able to accomplish! These patterns are gorgeous, I definitely want to knit one (the question is which one)!
