Emerald Isle Fingerless Mitts – Tunisian Knit

Emerald Isle Fingerless Mitts

Happy St. Patrick’s Day again!

We’re celebrating all month here. Check out “Land of the Fairies Shawl” from the other day. More green. More tunisian!

Emerald Isle Fingerless Mitts

Fingerless mitts can sometimes leave something to be desired – namely, warmth!

Not these! Worked in Tunisian knit stitch with #6 bulky yarn, these are thick and cozy! They crochet up very fast, and have the lovely look of knit that us crocheters are often jealous of or try to replicate in some way. Well these are better than regular knit because the nature of Tunisian crochet is that it creates a dense fabric. Translation: WARM! And you can still grip those important things like your keys, cell phone, steering wheel or maybe even your crochet hook! Did I mention these are EASY to make? Let’s get started!

Make 1 for each hand! For most people that will be two. J
