You know that perfect sweater that you just love to wear?
I made fingerless gloves inspired by that favorite sweater! You know, the one with the soft, soft yarn and stretchy ribbing? The one that keeps you warm all the time and you wear 20 times between washes because you can’t bear to be without it all winter? These Favorite Sweater Mitts give the same comfort and warmth as your treasured top.
I can’t stop wearing these! They are so warm and comfortable! I swear, I am sitting here typing and drinking coffee with them on. (My office is terribly cold this time of year. It’s an icebox.)
I chose Lion Brand Mandala for this pattern, and at first I didn’t like the slow color changes for such a small project, but now I think the the fact they each mitt is different is part of what makes them even more my Favorite.
The stretch of this stitch makes these hug your wrists just right.
I know I sound like a broken record, but these really are my new favorite fingerless gloves.
