I have made these fingerless mitts–quick and easy (although next time, I may add a cable on them for added interest)! They use worsted weight yarn. While wearing them, I wondered if I could make kind of like a “cap” to fit over the exposed fingers to turn these fingerless mitts into mittens. I stumbled across a pattern on Knitty that does exactly this–it’s almost like a little hat to fit over those fingers. The Knitty pattern uses fingering weight yarn, but as I pointed out, the pattern I used uses worsted.
In order to make these little “caps” for my fingerless mitts, do I treat it kind of like a hat, in that I’d cast on the same amount of stitches as I did for the fingerless mitts, do some rib, knit in the round using stockinette, do decreases until I reach the end and then pull the yarn end through the few remaining live stitches to finish off?
