Voilà: Kettenglied Fingerless Mitts

Knit Picks released their 2015 Spring Accessories Collection.

And my Kettenglied Fingerless Mitts are in it. Second of 26 patterns, page 11.

What color will yours be?

One of their test knitters knit the final version, and Knit Picks photographed them on a darling gal who looks very happy to be wearing them.

Fingers are free so you can fix your hair.

More, please.

If there’s one thing I can design, it’s fingerless mitts.

Pattern Details: Kettenglied Fingerless Mitts Pattern by Robin Allen | A Texas Girl Knits

These fingerless mitts use an easy series of twisted knit stitches and regular purl stitches to create a highly textured ribbing that looks like square chain links (Kettenglied is the German word for chain link). Knit in the round from the bottom up, a few stitches are bound off and then cast on to form the thumb hole.

Pattern includes both written and charted instructions.

Skills: Knitting through the back loop, purling, working in the round, working from a chart, binding off and casting on in the middle of a round; researching techniques you’re unfamiliar with.

Finished Measurements: 5.5″/14cm long; 6.75″/17cm circumference, relaxed; stretches to 9″/23cm circumference.

Yarn: Knit Picks Galileo (50% Merino, 50% Bamboo; 131 yards/50g): Firefly 26101, 1 skein.

Needles: US 5 (3.75mm) DPNs, or size to obtain gauge.

Notions: Yarn needle, stitch markers.

Gauge: 28 sts and 32 rnds = 4″ over Stitch Pattern in the round, blocked.

To Ponder: Care what other people think and you will always be their prisoner. |-Lao Tzu-|
