Tailored Shell Mitts

After searching the internet for the right fingerless mitts and not being able to make the other patterns I found work with the yarn I chose, I settled down and got busy creating a new one. I love the way these came out with the shell pattern through the majority of the yarn, and fitting the thumbs as well. It fits an average woman's wrist and is made with an Aran yarn, they are comfy, fitted, and warm.

Please let me know if anything doesn't make sense, or match up. Sometimes my notes make sense to my brain but not to others. I love it when you help me find those times, and appreciate the assistance in making the pattern more understandable.

  1. Stacey, thanks for sharing this. I have some pretty wool yarn that someone gave me last year and I've been trying to decide what to make with it. I think these will be perfect!

    2. I just have one question as I'm getting started. For Row 2 you say "fpdc, "hdc" but in Row 3 you say "fpdc" in "fpsc". Is that a misprint?

      Delete
    3. Yes! Misprint I will fix right now. THANK YOU. they are FPDC :D

  2. I get lost around row 12 with the number of row repeats as well as on row 15- I don't get how the thumb hole is made...

    1. Thank you! On row 12: Do one 3 dc shell, two 5 dc shells, and then three 3 dc shells.
      The thumb hold is made when you place the sc on the middle stitch of the two 7 dc shells.
      Does that help?
