SPLIT DECISION MITTS use DK weight yarn with modular construction to create unique and useful fingerless mitts. These mitts use multi-directional garter stitch to create a fun and functional fabric. This pattern is available in 4 sizes and coordinates wonderfully with my Split Decision Hat

Can't decide which one to use as your main color? Make a split decision, and reverse them for the second mitt. This perfectly imperfect resolution lets you get away with using just one 50 g skein of each color for any size.

Measure palm circumference using a fabric tape measure around widest part of the palm just below the knuckles. Choose mitt size based on this measurement and personal preference, as mitts can be worn with either negative or positive ease. Variations in gauge will also impact finished size.
