Freebie pattern HERE thanks to Lion Brand
remember you need to be signed in to see most things here tho.
Turned out quite well, using DK wool and a 4.5mm hook. Will make it's partner later on, and they should fit my 3 yr old over his normal ones to make wellieboot socks.
I like the general pattern, but i think next time i would just use 2 colours...there's a lot of carrying the wool up the inside that could easily get tangled with tiny toes, altho with a couple of washes it should felt into the rest okay.

My Granny is now...errr...87 years old. Yup 87 and still going pretty strong LOL.
But like most older peeps she feels the cold in her extremities...just not enough to wear gloves in the house cos then she can't do her crosswords.
SO...fingerless mits...gives the warmth of mittens with fingertips and thumb free to hold her pen.
She already has a bright pink pair I made for a tester size, but she needs at least a wash and a wear...so here's her 2nd set.
