Lazy Rib Fingerless Mitts

Lazy rib fingerless mittsNow that we no longer live in Florida, my daughter was excited for me to make her a pair of fingerless mitts.

She picked the yarn and the pattern.  The pattern for Lazy Rib Fingerless Mitts can be found here.

I have to admit I was very disappointed in this pattern. There is a little confusion in the row number but I could live with it.  I knitted the pattern as written for the larger size.  The pattern has the same number of stitches on both the top and the bottom edge. This created a mitt that was huge around the fingers.  I ended up trashing that mitt and starting over.

For the second and third mitt that I knitted, I decreased the pattern after the thumb gusset. I did not make notes of decrease, rather I just winged it.  While this method is a real pain in the butt, my daughter is happy with them, so I will take it as a win.

On to the next project…

Happy Knitting.
