How To Knit | Fingerless Mitts

This really is the perfect season for knitting!  Today, I am bringing you guys another requested video and pattern: a pair of fingerless mittens!  I think these are so pretty, and I love the cabled design on them.  Plus, they're so handy to slip on whenever and wherever you are for a little added warmth while still maintaining full use of your fingers!  Not going to lie, I definitely had them on this morning while I was doing some computer work while waking up from a winter's nap. :)  I hope you love them as much as I do, and always, if you make these yourself, please share your pictures with me!

  2. Fingerless gloves are often padded in the palm area, to provide protection to the hand
