This fantastic patterns comes to us from Natalie Jacobs of Organic Stills.
I lost the tag for the yarn that I made these from, but I remember the color way was called Audrey Hepburn, which inspired the name for these.
These fingerless mitts are a good beginner project with an easy to remember pattern stitch. They work up quickly so they are a lovely idea for a last minute gift. As the pattern stitch is worked all the way around, there is no difference between the left and right hand mitts. The cables can easily be done without a cable needle, or using a spare double pointed needle, if you don't want to use a cable needle. I designed these on double pointed needles, but this can easily be adapted for any other method that you prefer.
Yarn: Approx 100 yards of worsted weight
Begin pattern stitch:
Repeat rows 1-8 of pattern stitch three times. (Do 2 repeats for shorter mitt, or additional repeats for longer mitt).
Create space for thumb:
Put the 6 stitches just knit onto the waste yarn back on left needle, as if starting the beginning of the row.
Using main yarn, knit rows 1-8 of the pattern stitch once more.
Work K2, P2 ribbing for 4 rows and bind off loosely.
Pick up one additional stitch in each corner (14 stitches total) and arrange evenly on the needles.
Join main yarn and knit around for 6 rows.
Bind off loosely and weave in all ends.
