The Single Jig Mitties came about as I was working on the Single Jig Mittens. They use the same cables and have the same longer cuff that fits nicely into the sleeves of a light jacket or even your winter coat if you just want a little something on your hands. The mitties are fingerless mitts but I’ve made them a bit longer on the fingers as I find them more comfortable walking with a cane; they don’t curl under and catch at my cane head the way other pairs seem inclined to doing.
The Mitties are knit in DK weight yarn and from the cuff down. I have included both written and charted instructions.Sizes:

I’m making it a priority to go back through my patterns and add low vision pdfs to them. I’m using the guidelines set out by the Accessible Patterns group. Changes in the new pdf include: 22pt font instead of 12pt, photo(s) captioned, and the use of bold type in place of italics and underlines.
