It’s fingerless glove knitting season again! The Cherokee Heights Arts Festival is coming up in November and I’m working on creating a new collection of the most popular item: fingerless gloves. Glove production is also my pattern design workshop where I work up new patterns, test them out a few times, write them down, and then test knit them with the yarn I think works best and photographs well. First up this season is Rhombic Mitts. I enjoyed the Ironwork Mitts from last year so much, I decided to do a new variation on the theme.
These fingerless mitts knit from the bottom cuff up.
They are knit in the round.
