Unisex Fingerless Mitts


A quick and easy project for some practical fingerless mitts to keep hand and wrists warm during the winter chill. Can be made for him or her and a quick and easy gift.

Skill Level: Easy

Materials: 5mm hook, 50g of DK yarn, tapestry needle, crochet stitch marker.

Notes: These mittens are crocheted in the round and you may need to use a stitch marker or safety pin to mark rounds. Before beginning mitts please measure around palm to get correct size. If you use a yarn with good stretch the mitts will fit better.

Measurements: 6”, 7”, 8” – around palm.

ch 24 (28,32), join with a sl st

Rnds 1-6: ch 1, work 1 sc into each ch to end of rnd, join with a sl st.

Rnd 7: ch 1, work 1 sc into next 10 sts, ch 3, sk 3 sts, work sc into all remaining sts, join with a sl st.

Rnds 8 – 13: ch 1, work 1 sc into each st to end of rnd, join with a sl st.

These are great! I'm working on a pair right now for my daughter that is a bit more time consuming on the ribbed cuff, but these would work great for a couple of quick gifts for my neighbors (and myself!)

They look very pretty! Thanks so much for the pattern! Perfect timing :-)

Thank you so much for this easy pattern; I was even able to do them while my very active and demanding 4 year grandson was with me! He loves them and wears them indoors too! Have made extra pairs, to take home with him.... regards ditzylizzzy
