Did I tell you I got to Rhinebeck without any mitts? Me, the woman who has knitted countless pair in the last four years. I won’t bore you with the details, but I wound up buying three different pairs of gloves over the course of two days, despite knowing how many were waiting for me at home. None of which quells my urge to cast on at least one of these—
1. Rosehip by Cello Knits. Any quelling here would be due to the fact that these are lace-weight knitted on US0 needles, but wouldn’t they feel amazing? For similar but in sport weight, see Ice Scrapers.
2. Scottish Barley by Cabinfour. Lovely cable-and-seed-stitch panel down the back of the hand would be fun to knit.
3. League by Klever Knits. Love those cables, and in worsted they’d be a satisfyingly quick knit. Pattern includes a matching hat.
4. Red Flannel by Alicia Plummer. Can’t go wrong with simple knits and purls.

ho! those mittens are really super pretty! thanks for sharing!:) I love your blog!
you can never have too many. those are all great!
Love them all!
Yes, love them all, but worsted (fast) best!
I think of fingerless mitts as socks without the fuss. Like a half day at school. Done and fun. These are beauties, Karen.
Hi, I want to add this lovely pattern Fetching by Cheryl Niamath. It was my first venture into double needles and I learned cables, waste yarn thumbs and picot bind off. I used a light worsted and #6 dpns and made two pairs so far. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTfetching.html
Your fingerless mitten selections are always scrumptious. Thanks for sharing!
As always, awesome choices! “Scrumptious” says it best. I want them all but League made my heart jump when I saw the hat pattern that’s included. That cinched which one I’d start with! Its gotta be mitts for holiday gifts if we can just finish up this move. Seathwaite is in progress, right where I can reach it easily (as in, by my computer.) The peace of knitting – a must!
I love those red flannel mitts! I’m getting ready to start another sett of Lambing Mitts (http://www.toltyarnandwool.com/blogs/blog/17124140-lambing-mitts).
Rats! Now I have to add 4 more projects to my Ravelry queue. Thanks for the inspiration. :-)
need a pair for when I’m riding my bike in the fall!!! chilly knuckles
Thank you so much for showing my mitts! I really hope your readers like them as much as I do!
I’m just finishing up mitts with celtic knots before I start on my Seathwaite:-). But I can see that the trend might tend towards another pair sometime soon!
HA, I don’t even like mitts but HAD to buy the Scottish Barley………….It was the reference to the Black Isle that got me :)
I am completely in love with fingerless gloves at the moment! They hit all the bases for me at this time of year!

Those are lovely patterns, as are the sweaters. They also look handknit- so tempting, but who has time for that?
