A Pair of Fingerless Mitts

To complete the Racing Horse scarf and hat set, I also knitted a pair of fingerless mitts.  Unlike the first two projects, the mitts are not double knit. They are only one layer with a smaller version of the checker-board.

I used a free-pattern that I have used several other times.  If you would like the pattern, it can be found on Ravelry (here).  This is a fabulous pattern and can easily be altered to match any project.  I have used it to create a pair of speckled mitts, and a solid purple pair.

Happy Knitting!

No surprise to my regular readers, I modified the pattern just a little.  Instead of following the instructions, I casted on 80 stitches of each color, and worked both sides of the hat simultaneously like I did with the scarf.  Continue reading “Double Knit Hat”
