Last winter I was working at my computer a lot and my hands started to feel really cold. So first time ever I felt that I needed fingerless mittens to keep my hands warm so that I could get my work done. I actually tried to work with gloves on, but it was very uncomfortable. As last year I knitted Honeycomb gloves, which are very snugly and comfy and still my favourites, I decided to use the same stitch pattern for fingerless version. I chose a bit thicker yarn this time.
I used 2 balls of Sublime Extra Fine Merino Wool DK (100% Merino, 127yds / 116m, 1.76oz / 50g) in color 0253. Needles US 2 1/2 [3mm].
Honeycomb fingerless mittens fit hand circumference 7-7 1/2” / 18-19cm. Circumference is easily adaptable, you can knit with larger needles or add/skip pattern repeats.
Length of the mittens is approximately 8” / 20cm. Again easily adaptable – more or less ribbing or pattern repeats.
