First design by....me!

fingmitts1 043

So, I've been wanting to take a try at designing myself, and what is easier than fingerless mitts to start?! These are in no way perfect, and I plan to improve on them. For starts, the thumb could start a little higher, and the top could be a little shorter, but overall, I'm happy. It's almost like a sampler fingerless mitt pattern. There are so many little techniques that went into it. I did a simple cable ribbing for the cuff, afterthought thumb (not ambidextrous-it starts on the palm side), slanted cable, seed stitch, and regular 2x2 rib, AND I used two circulars (a first for me). Go me!
