you might remember these from this post.
My husband can often be found practicing organ in drafty old churches in the middle of the night. For that reason, our organist/pianist friends are always requesting this style of fingerless mitt. This pattern, based on a vintage men’s sock pattern, has become my standby. Simple and practical, this would also be a great pattern to practice cabling without a cable needle.
Yarn: worsted weight wool – approx. 130 yds (119 m)
Needles: size 7 US (4.5 mm) needles (either a set of double-pointed needles or a long circular for magic loop) or whatever size is needed to get gauge
Gauge: about 16 sts/2 in. (5 cm), not stretched and in pattern
Size: One size. Because these are stretchy and ribbed, they will fit many sizes. One pair I made fit women’s medium-men’s medium and another (with Cascade 220) ended up being women’s medium-men’s large. Go up or down a needle size as needed.
