When mittens and gloves get in the way of all the little things you use your fingers for everyday, fingerless mitts are the answer! Lady Fingers designed by Pink Lemon Twist will keep your hands and wrists warm, but they allow you to use your fingers easily. This pattern is actually three patterns in one: A Basic Mitt, a Patterned Mitt, and a Lace Mitt. Each mitt has a different top style (ribbing, seed stitch, or a  picot hem) that complements its design or can be mixed and matched with another mitt style. Directions are written for 7 inch, 7-1/2 inch, and 8 inch palm  measurements with variations and adjustment instructions to fit shorter or  longer hand lengths. There are also variations suggested for the patterning so  you can really customize your mitts!  

In addition to the pattern directions, a Techniques section is included for newer knitters or those who have never used double pointed needles. If you know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, you can knit these mitts.  Explanations (with words and pictures) include increases, decreases, basic lace knitting, sewing down a hem, reading a chart, picking up stitches from a holder and all  the other techniques you'll need to know to make these. Plus the pattern is divided to make it easy for you to carry with your knitting. Grab the directions for the specific type of mitt you're working on (just leave the other two sets  of directions at home) and toss them in your knitting bag! If you're a beginning  knitter you can keep the Techniques section with your working pattern, but  intermediate and more advanced knitters can just refer to it as needed.
