These fingerless mittens are squishy and as light as a feather, thanks to the beautiful Feather Stitch stitch pattern! These mittens are worked in the round until the thumb opening, worked back and forth to shape the thumb opening, and then finished in the round. The thumb and top of the mitten are edged in half double-crochet.

With only a one-round repeat, these mittens work up fast, and are perfect for a more portable project!

The Teal Sample was knit in *WeCrochet Gloss DK (70% merino, 30% silk), in "Kenai" and shown in size S. The Purple Sample was knit in Tanis Fiber Arts Amber Label (75% merino, 15% cashmere, 10% silk), and shown in size XS.

Pattern Notes:

These fingerless mittens start with a half-double crochet chainless foundation; and are joined in the round. They are split and worked flat to form an opening for the thumb, before joining to form the final top of the hand. The thumb opening is then edged with a round of half double crochet, before finishing. This stitch spirals in continuous rounds, so there is no need to keep a strict marker for the beginning and end of the round.

This pattern has written instructions only. This pattern also has an accessible large print option that is compatible with screen-reading software.
