These elbow length fingerless mitts are the perfect antidote for cold arms. They’re great for wearing with short-sleeved tops when the weather turns, and work just as well under long-sleeved tops/jackets. Wear them fully stretched or cosily squooshed around the wrists; they work just as well either way. They can also easily be made in one colour - they require approximately 60g of yarn in total.
