Ever since typing that bit about my single skein of Crooked Fence Farm yarn being destined to become a pair of fingerless mitts, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about which mitts. It’s a humbly gorgeous yarn — the yarn next door who doesn’t know how pretty she is — and I want it to be something simple but not overly plain, quick to knit but not boring. I’m in love with Tante Ehm’s Rime mitts (lower photo), with their simple repeat of slipped knits against reverse stockinette, but think the better choice for this yarn might be Melissa Schaschwary’s Timber Bay Mitts (upper photo) with their alternating waves of k1/p1 textures. I’ll have to keep that in mind as my next little traveling project.

I like the Fee-Bee mitts too, by Bonnie Sennott
I like a little something at the wrist…
Those are really cute and I have the perfect yarn for a pair – thanks!
They are just perfect for reading in bed at night during the winter! We don’t have fully heated houses in São Paulo, Brazil.
That bottom pair is gorgeous!
Twisted Rib Hat & Mitt Set
by Courtney Spainhower is also really simple, I think the twisted stitches can help define a soft yarn (free on ravelry)
Can’t wait to cast on a pair of these Wild Feather Mitts:
Those are in my favorites, as well.
My fave is Fetching. Pattern on Ravelry. So quick!
I’ve made multiple pairs of them! Great pattern.
I’m loving the adaptable mitts pattern, Barrabin, created for the Fibreshed Melbourne Knitalong specifically for farm yarns and a flexible gauge: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/barrabin-mittens—fibreshed-2017
I had a very special wooly handed skein that I used the lambing mitts pattern. Really Great!!
We just came out with a pattern for mittens with crooked fence yarn (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/windrow-2). Its such a pleasure to work with!
