FREE PATTERN ALERT!!!

Yeah I finally wrote up one of the patterns I have waiting to be written up.

I named the Rose because well I made these last March for my Aunt Rose. So I named the pattern after her.


Rose Fingerless Mitts

Wosted weight yarn (I used around 125 yards)
size 7 needles in which ever style of knitting around that you perfer (dpns, magic loop or 2 circs)
markers (I used 3)
cable needle (if you use one)
waste yarn

Note: I have made these mitts 3 times and each time I cabled different. Cable how you like. For example: On my first pair I all of the cables twisted in one direction. On the 2nd pair the cables on the left mitt went right and the cables on the right mitt went left. On the 3rd pair the cables on each mitt twist toward each other. Feel free to do any of these ways. The pattern is written for the twisting toward each other.

Here is an example of the cables that are written
rose self dyed
(more examples at the end)

Both mitts start the same and only differ in where the thumb gusset is placed

cf4 - place the next 2 stitches on cable needle and hold in front. Knit the next 2 stitches then the 2 stitches from cable needle

cb4 - place the next 2 stitches on cable needle and hold in back. Knit the next 2 stitches then the 2 stitches from cable needle

m1 - use whichever form of increase you are comfy with. I use the backward loop

CO 36
Place marker and join (making sure nothing is twisted)

R1: k2, p2, k4, p2, k2, p2, k4, p2 then k2, p2 to end of round
R2: repeat rd 1
R3: k2, p2, cf4, p2 k2, p2, cb4, p2 then k2, p2 to end of round
R4-8: repeat rd 1
R9: repeat rd 3

Basically you do the cable round every 6th round

R10 - 14: rpeat rd 1
R15: repeat rd 3
R16 - 20: repeat rd 1
R21: repeat rd 3
R22 - 26: repeat rd 1
R27: repeat rd 3
R28 - 32: repeat rd 1

R33 is the round where the thumb gusset is started. I use what is for me a basic one. For the left mitt the gusset will start in the first k2 of the round. For the right mitt the thumb gusset will start in the first k2 after the second cable.

R33: repeat rd 3 and at the same time at the k2 for the appropiate mitt: k1, place marker, m1, place marker, k1

thumb gusset: basically every other round you increase like this

k1, slip marker, m1, knit to marker, m1, slip marker, k1
Next round knit across the gusset stitches

Increase until you have 15 stitches between markers. Knit across then place stitches on waste yarn and continue mitt untill end

Remember to continue thumb gusset and

R34 - 38: round 1
R39: round 3
R40-44: round 1
R45: round 3
R46 - 50: round 1
R51: round 3
R52-56: round 1
R57: round 3
R58 and 59: round 1

BO

Place thumb stitches on needles and also pick up 2 stitch where thumb meets glove.

next round: k2tog then knit to last 2 stiches, k2tog

Knit 2 more rounds then BO

Weave in ends then make other mitt and Enjoy!!
