Charlotte fingerless mitts

By: Kathleen Sperling from knotions.com

Charlotte fingerless mitts

"In trying to adapt a woodworking artform into knitting, I came up with a chart which I was very pleased with, but which had an unintended visual effect: everyone I showed it to said it looked like a spider web! Rather than chucking out the chart and starting all over again, I decided to roll with what I had, and this fingerless mitts pattern is the result. It’s named after a beloved and talented web-spinning character from children’s literature, whose love and friendship has been warming hearts for over sixty years. These fingerless mitts are perfect for keeping your hands warm on those in-between weather days, and in cold office buildings. NEEDLE REQUIREMENTS 2.5mm (US 1.5) YARN REQUIREMENTS (Amounts are approximates.) - Main colour: 110 (130, 150) yards - Contrast colour: 36 (44, 50) yards SIZING - Small: finished hand circumference 6.5”, to fit hand circumference up to 7”, total height 6” - Medium: finished hand circumference 7”, to fit hand circumference up to 7.5”, total height 6.5” - Large: finished hand circumference 7.5”, to fit hand circumference up to 8”, total height 7” 0% to 5% negative ease around the hand is recommend."
