Fingerless Mitts III

Fingerless mitts knit for CIC out of Elanns Puruvian Highland WoolPattern: Diamond Handwarmers from CIC knitter Ruth

Yarn: Elann Peruvian Highland Wool, worsted weight 100% wool

Color: Candy Cane Red

Needles: #4 double points

Gauge: 5.5 stitches/inch, 8 rows/inch

Saturday evening I picked up Ruth's pattern and knit the first one of these in a little less than three hours. Sunday afternoon I cast on the second one and it went even quicker.

These are large on me, which is what is wanted. Most of the caretakers have larger hands than I do.

These are very pretty, practical, and warm for the CIC caregivers. The pattern is easy to follow with detail instructions for every row where there is thumb gusset or the diamond pattern. I followed the pattern word for word and didn't find any errors. Thanks Ruth!
