I don’t have a WIP today, but I do have a new pattern!
Mittens are warmer than gloves because your fingers can intermingle and share their warmth with each other, but they aren’t exactly practical when it comes to doing things that involve your fingers. These convertible knucks give you the best of both worlds: the warmth of mittens with the functionality of gloves in the form of a removable mitten flap.
These would be a great project to use up that single* skein of sock yarn you have in your stash as well as a quick gift knit for a friend or relative (*please note that some knitters do need two skeins for the smaller size, so you might want two just to be safe). Just another simple layer to add to your wardrobe, these knucks will become a fast favorite and you’ll be hard pressed to adventure into the cold without them.
