Hand-knitted fingerless mitts, especially if they incorporate the fair isle and intarsia style, are great for this time of year. A classic style of mittens for wintery outings, a great match to the decorations and perfect for shopping with freedom of fingers in this fingerless style.
And let’s face it, at this time of year, a seasonal touch can never go amiss!
Knit these up for yourself and wear them for a few months over the winter, knowing you’ll be wearing them year after year, to bring holiday joy to all who see them. (Not quite so obvious as a ‘Christmas jumper,’ but in the same spirit!)
You’ll need stranded and intarsia experience, but don’t worry about trying Intarsia in the round, you’ll be knitting these flat and sewing a side seam.
The Drops Alaska and Nepal yarns are available in a great range of colours, so if you’d prefer a different background then go for it. You could have a couple of pairs to match different scarves!
Full colour chart is included.
These knit up big, so they feel roomy and very cosy with the thick year. They cover the fingers well and are ideal if you like to wear fingerless mitts with thin gloves underneath.

Included in Pattern:
- Two versions of the digital pattern, one with full colour images to illustrate features, and a printable version with fewer photos and less colour.
- Also available is the upgrade to purchase as a licensed collection of all three knitting patterns – you’ll be able to knit these up for sale as many times as you like. It’s a life-time license, no need to renew.
- Opt for the collection for personal use and save almost 35% by choosing the collection instead of the knitting patterns one at a time. Whether you leave one to knit up next year, or knit three pairs up for different members of your family, you’ll be a winner!
- Please note, video tutorials are not included with these patterns as they are from 2019, before I began filming tutorial videos for patterns.
