Ribbed Fingerless Mitts

Both of my daughters have American Girl dolls.  From now until Christmas I am going to see how many pieces of clothing and accessories I can make for them.  The first project was a quickie and used just  a small amount of sock yarn.


Needles: size US3 (3.25mm) circular (for magic loop) or double pointed needles.
Yarn: fingering weight sock yarn (25-30 yards)
Gauge: 6 stitches per inch in stockinette

CO 24, join to work in the round being careful not to twist.

Work 10 rounds of 2×2 rib


Round 11: k1fb, k1fb, (p2, k2) to end [26 sts.]
Round 12: k4, (p2, k2) to end
Round 13: k1fb, k2, k1fb, (p2,k2) to end [28 sts.]
Round 14: k6, (p2, k2) to end
Round 15: k1, bind off next 4 sts, (p2, k2) to end [24sts]


Round 16: you now have 1 stitch, a gap where the thumb stitches have been bound off, and then the rest of the stitches.  Ignore the gap and (k2, p2) to the end continuing to work in the round.
Round 17: k2tog, (p2, k2) to end. [23 sts.]
Rounds 18-21 – k1, (p2, k2) to end
Bind off in pattern
