Last year I knitted this skirt for young Miss H in a gorgeous super chunky Noro - the thing is - she grew! The yarn is so delicious, I had to unravel it and start a couple of new little projects. This week I finished a quick plain rectangular fingerless mitten for Miss H. This is the pattern I made up:
Cast on 22 on 6mm needles.
Rib about 8 rows.
Stocking Stitch until measure about 10cm ( I added a couple of rib rows in too).
Purl three rows, cast off in purl.
Sew up the seam and leave a thumb opening.
I love this simple little pattern, much preferred to knitting a thumb in, the freedom of thumb dexterity is better I think.
I knitted myself a beanie with the same yarn, I can't remember the pattern, but it was in the round with a cast on of about 90 stitches I think.
I'm reading The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers, not sure how I like it yet... have just discovered there is a movie and thinking I might like to watch it rather than read this story.
Happy Yarn Along!
