Why fingerless mitts? There are a few reasons; They keep our fingers free for touch screens, they allow you better feel and control of the wheel while driving, and they also use less yarn if you are limited. This pattern was written specifically to use up the left over yarn from the Toquelicious hat so you could have a matching set. I was able to knit an adult small hat and these fingerless mitts with one skein of tweed and one skein of mohair. If you need larger mitts or knit the larger size hat then you may want to supplement with a coordinating skein for the cuffs.
One size fits most.
7 inches (17.5cm) from bottom of cuff to top of ribbing on the palm.
3.5 inches (9cm) at wrist before thumb gusset.
You can adjust the length by adding more rounds before and/or after the thumb gusset to fit your hand.
