Meteor Shower Mitts
Fingerless mitts are so practical and fashionable. These are worked two at a time eliminating the dreaded second sleeve/sock/mitt syndrome.
Basic Pattern Info
Pattern has been graded for 3 sizes, has been tech edited and test knitted, and I've included links to video tutorials to ensure a stressless knit. It is also easy to modify for longer wrist cuff or finger cuff.
Worked in the round two at a time using magic loop, starting with ribbing, then working the star pattern across backs and stockinette across palms while shaping for the thumb, separating for the thumb, then working the final ribbing. The thumbs are worked last one at a time.
