My monkey’s hands are cold! Well, not really, they have lots of mittens but I have requests from all the monkeys for knitted mittens. First up…. fingerless mitts for the eldest. Neither of us could find a pattern that we really liked, so….. we created!
She was the designer of sorts and I the knitter! I took copious notes (thank goodness) for the first, so the second wouldn’t look too drastically different from the first. I did take the suggestion from a fellow knitter (thanks loneknitter) to use a 2×2 ribbing on the next mitt for added give and elasticity. The first had 1×1 ribbing at the wrist, but I wanted something snugger.
