Slim Fit Stripe Mitt

Posted in Knitting

Slim Fit Stripe Mits are knitted in the round and designed for slender hands.

All the shaping is worked at the beginning and ends of the rounds so it’s very easy to add or subtract some stitches when you cast on for a better fit, if your gauge swatch indicates you need them.

I haven’t had this pattern tested so please let me know if you have any problems with it and I’ll try and help.
