I need help! I am knitting all of my Christmas gifts this year and I need an easy, quick pattern for men’s fingerless mittens. I am using worsted weight yarn and all of the men are about a size medium. Thanks for any help
Have you tried ravelry.com? Free to join, more patterns than I could count. Here’s a search result for you to start with if you haven’t already tried there. You can refine the search more. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/search#craft=knitting&fit=adult%2Bmale&view=captioned_thumbs&sort=popularity&pc=fingerless
I do use ravelry. I have searched through it some but everything I seem to find is more intricate and detailed than I want. I just want a simple pattern that I can knock out super fast that the hunting, car-working, tree-cutting men in my family will wear. lol.
Try watching Kelley’s Mitten Class on youtube. You can just cast on for the cuff, work as long as you want and bind off, basically. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2CZ_bMzk_k As long as you have a pretty good idea of your gauge and how large you want the mittens, you really don’t need a pattern IMHO. She shows gusset and afterthought thumbs. There is also a mitten video for purchase on this site that is more of a guide to follow than a pattern as I understand.
These are for size large but I think they’d be pretty easy to change to medium by casting on fewer stitches for the hand.
I have links to a bunch of fingerless gloves, but I have never done any of them myself. I wonder how hard it might be. [=fingerless"]http://www.patternlinks.com/search.php?id=39&data[pattern]=fingerless](http://www.patternlinks.com/search.php?id=39&data[pattern)
