Commie Mitts (fingerless gloves)
Alright so maybe they're not. But they can have their raving illogical delusions sometimes. i made these in my favorite colors, which i have been teased for in the past. They work up really fast and are all sc, the thing that some people might have a *tiny* problem with is the sizing. i have thin hands and fingers, and sometimes the only store bought gloves/mittens that will fit me are a kids size (the stretchy knit kind) So if while working on this pattern you find that they look too small for yourself, it will be easy to just add a few more stitches to the foundation, and a few more rows to the body :) Here goes the pattern:
fingering weight yarn (about 1 oz per mitt)
aluminum size E hook (US)
(the mitts in the pic are multicolored but the directions will be for just one color. this way you can stripe it up as you see fit if you want)
1) sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across. (36 sc)
2) ch1, turn. sc in same st as turning and in each across. (36 sc)
3-26) repeat Row 2.
Fasten off yarn,
fold piece in half and sew into a tube shape, making sure to leave a space open for the thumb.
1) sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each across. (10 sc)
2) ch1, turn. in BACK LOOPS ONLY, sc in same st as turning and in each across. (10 sc)
3-24) repeat Row 2.
Fold piece in half and sew into a short tube shape. Sew to bottom of mitt.
