This product is for a digital download of the pattern only.

Ideal for walking the dog in the woods or to keep your hands warm on days out as the weather turns colder, these quick and easy fingerless mitts are a variation of double crochet, which is good for beginners and more experienced crocheters alike. The larger size can be worn on smaller hands as oversized fingerless mitts, with soft smooshy fabric, or the smaller size can be worn as well-fitting, cosy, warm fingerless mitts. They are easily customisable, by adding ruffles top and bottom, or adding in stripes at any point on the hand.

Although this pattern was written for Whitfell DK, it would be just as good in Milburn DK and many other of our DK yarns. The third image shows this pattern made with Milburn DK in Damson and the fourth image is Oakworth DK in Old Jeans.
