I love a good pair of fingerless mitts. Toasty hands with fingers free to knit and type are my ideal. I also love having longer mitts because so many of my shirts and sweaters have three quarter length sleeves. These adorable Scandies Mitts have it all plus a really easy to remember fair-isle pattern that is perfect for first time colorwork or those of us who have been away from it for a while.
I am knitting mine in Shepherd’s Wool DK from Stonehedge Fiber Mill. This yarn is wonderful. It feels velvety going through your hands and has great stitch definition. There are lots of color combinations to choose from.
What combo speaks to you? The pattern for these adorable Scandies Mitts is in the Holiday Gift issue of Interweave Magazine. These would make great Christmas gifts for friends!
