Free Fallin’ Mitts

When we find ourselves falling (in like, in love, off of a yarn diet), we are so lucky to have good friends there to catch us. This project works up so quickly, you could whip up a pair in almost no time at all to show your friend how much you appreciate their support. Plus, the slipped stitches in these fingerless mitts make all kinds of yarn look gorgeous, from solids and tonals, to variegated or speckled. The pattern includes options for making them in a standard length, or extra long so you can fold back a double-layered top cuff or leave them long on chillier days.
