Ribbed Fingerless Mitts Knitted

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I finished knitting the ribbed fingerless mitts by Kathy North today. I used the pattern Ribbed Fingerless Mitts from Ravelry. It was a fun and quick project and the perfect pattern for a beginner at knitting fingerless mittens.

I used some fingering yarn by Manos Del Uruguay in the Alegria yarn in the Happy colorway.  I used bamboo circular needles in the size US 8 5 mm. The pattern calls for worsted weight yarn, so I cast on 48 stitches instead of the 32 they suggest to achieve the correct gauge. The yarn worked well with the pattern by added the extra stitches and the finished product are squishy, and soft fingerless mittens that I am looking forward to wearing this winter. You can read my notes on Ravelry here.

Knitting these mittens made me love knitting fingerless mittens and I can definitely see myself knitting some more of these in different colors and they would be perfect as gifts for friends and family. They are so comfortable and leave your fingers free for texting and knitting!

Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you are having a great weekend, and I will chat with you again this week!

Have a great day!

  1. Aren't speckled yarns the best? Those are such cute mitts.
    I really like mine with thumbs, so I'm trying to figure out how to add a thumb on the mitts that I want to make.
