Easy Knitted Fingerless Mitts Pattern

Yes, it’s free. I created this pattern by squashing a couple other patterns together that I found all over the internet. I’m mostly putting it here for my reference for later. I don’t plan on making any more for a while (6 pairs are enough for now!) and I don’t want to forget the pattern I worked up by next winter.

I was never good at gauging patterns… I measured the stockinette stitch across the wrist, and came up with 5 1/2 stitches in 1 inch across. When layed flat, the gloves are roughly 3 1/2 inches across at the widest part of the wrist and 7 inches long from top to bottom.

    Oh thank you. I lost a similar pattern I used a few years ago–you did the same thing I did–put things you liked in several patterns together. Bless your heart for saving me–I won’t have to try and re-create it – You did all the work. Hugs….

    How do 39 sts become 45 sts if one is k2tog three times? Isn’t that decreasing — making it 36 ts??
