My new addiction - fingerless mitts, especially fingerless mitts in City Tweed. Again, they were a one-skein project; that's hard to beat!
These are from the Always & Forever Fingerless Mitts free pattern on Ravelry
, using City Tweed HW
in Blue Blood.
I made these mitts much longer on both the arm and finger ends than the pattern calls for, and still only used 82 grams out of the 100 grams in the ball. I like the open lacyness of this stitch pattern because the Merino/alpaca blend is really warm - it's nice to have "breathing holes".
I think I used US size 4 needles
, but again, that's me - the super loose knitter. One of the great things about these mitts is that gauge is not super critical, and the stitch pattern is pretty stretchy.
