Last year I knitted my brother a pair of fingerless mitts which he said he really liked, so I decided to knit up a few more for the rest of the men in my family.
This is a great pattern, and it's free, and it uses worsted weight yarn!
I used Caron Simply Soft Yarn since that's nice and washable and hard-wearing as well as being very soft.
The thumb gusset is especially nice feeling on the hands. A lot of mitten patterns just have a thumb opening that sticks out the side, but this one is actually knit into the seam of the mitten.
I might knit a pair for myself after Christmas, because they keep my hands warm while keeping my fingers free to knit or play piano/violin. Very useful.
Two more presents to be wrapped and placed under the tree!
