I know that it is spring and almost summer but I wanted to practice my new found Knooking skills. I flipped through the booklet in the Knook Beginner Set for Kids and decided I would try to make a pair of fingerless mittens. In the book, the fingerless mittens are called Texting Mitts. Since it is a pattern for kids, and the instructions said to chain 14 and pick up 13 stitches, I added 4 more making it 18 stitches and picked up 17 stitches. Doing this made it longer because it goes down your arm not around. I Knooked until it wrapped around and touched but I didn't pull it too tightly. I also made sure when I started to leave a tail and also a tail when I was finished for sewing the seam. If you need any help with Knooking there are videos to help.
I used Paton's Classic Wool worsted; it will be slightly scratchy until it is washed by hand and laid flat to dry. Next time I think I will add 4 more stitches to make it even longer. Fingerless mittens are quick and easy to Knook, crochet, and knit. They also make wonderful gifts for yarn worthy friends or family.
