Since making the Cashmere Fingerless Gloves, we've had lots of requests for slight pattern alternatives. I agree that no one pattern can answer all of our hand-warming needs, so I came up with a couple of variations on the original theme: Hand Warmers and Flip Top Mittens.
The Hand Warmers eliminate the challenge of knitting the fingers without sacrificing the elegance of the original pattern. And the Flip Top Mittens do the double duty of warming cold fingers on some days and liberating busy fingers on others. Both patterns still use only one skein of Jade Sapphire's amazing 6 ply cashmere and one skein of Blue Sky Alpaca's Sportweight Alpaca.
Now we can all be equipped for whatever circumstances come our way: unseasonably warm weather in New York or snowstorms in Seattle!
