The Boardwalk Stroll fingerless mitts
are a great way use up the left over yarn from your Boardwalk Stroll Poncho
. These mitts match the poncho, which was inspired by the many boardwalks I have strolled along, through many long hot summers in the United States.
These are a seamless design, knit in the round. They begin and end with an eyelet mesh, with a wide twisted rib that connects both. The thumb gusset is created by simple increases forming a continuous wide twisted rib pattern. And it comes with a bonus for those of you who love knitting 2-at-time mitts – the same pattern is used for both the left and right mitts!SIZES:
