keyboard mitts

you might remember these from this post.

joe's mitts

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.
