Just in time for winter the Mermaid Mitts have been finished!
They're made from Noro Silk Garden and only took 1 ball. I halved the ball before I started so I could just knit until each half was used up. The colours remind me of a mermaid, so the name stuck.
Yarn: 8ply/worsted weight. 1 50gram ball.
Cast on an even number of stitches (I cast on 40) and knit 2x2 rib until desired length or you run out of wool ;). Make 2.
To sew up, start at the arm end and sew until half way. Then try on your mitt and measure how far up your fingers you want it to go - this will determine where you leave a gap for your thumb. Now continue sewing up to where your thumb will be, bind off. Now sew from the top down to the beginning of your thumb opening.
Congratulations, you now have a pair of fingerless mitts!
