Midcoast Mitts


Midcoast Mitts is a simple fingerless mitt pattern, perfect for the beginner knitter. Two sizes are provided as well as two different style options: short & long versions and solid & striped versions. Yardage requirements for each style is listed below. Because this pattern is catered to the beginner knitter, I have also created a photo tutorial on my blog that shows how you cast-on and join for working in the round for DPN projects. Link also provided in PDF.

This is the PDF version of the pattern. After going through the checkout you will receive an email with a downloadable PDF link. If you prefer to purchase through Ravelry, click here.
