View Full Version : FO - fingerless mitts

10-05-2007, 12:13 PM
I didn't really use one particular pattern per se, I sort of combined a few different ones and used the parts of each that I liked. The cable part is based on the Dashing mitts from knitty, and the rest is based on some other generic mitten patterns because I wanted a thumb gusset and not just the waste yarn thumb that the Dashing and Fetching patterns use. The yarn is some Red Heart 'McIntosh' from Wal-Mart, the colour is called grapevine. It's a wool/acrylic blend. I mostly bought it for the colours which felt very autumn-ish.

I'd love the pattern also. I love wearing gloves basically all the time especially because i essentully type for a living and it's nice to have my fingers out plus i like that they don't go much beyond the wrist.

Great looking gloves and to think you were inginious enough to combine patterns! So that puts me in line as well for the pattern as I think its a perfect combination of all I love about fingerless gloves.

There are so many of us on the growing list for knitqueen's wonderful pattern, maybe it should eventually become a knit along... :)
