This pattern is for my author friends and others who spend too much time at the keyboard on cold winter days. These fingerless mitts have nothing between the fingers and are made to fit snuggly so that they don’t interfere with the keyboard or mouse. And with no fancy stitching … they knit up in a snap!
For driving and outdoor wear, try my Glovelets pattern.
