I’ve just uploaded a pattern on Ravelry. In-A-Pinch Fingerless Mitts are about the simplest pattern possible. They use a single ball of Lion Brand Merino Yak Alpaca yarn (yum!) and are knitted on size U.S. 5 (3.75 mm) needles. You can easily knit a pair in a weekend.
The yarn is superbly soft and squishy, and it feels fabulous in your hands. The simple slip-stitch rib pattern adds a bit of texture and knitting enjoyment to the ottherwise plain mitts. For an even easier knit, omit the slip-stitch pattern and work the mitts in k3, p1 rib instead.
For now through September 15, you can get the pattern at 25% off by entering the code LUXURY MITTS.
