Fantastical Fox Mitts
Foxes have been one of my favourite animals ever since reading Fantasitc Mr Fox as a child. My Fantastical Fox Mitts are a homage to the humble fox.
The mitts are fingerless with a flip top to keep your fingers warm whilst keeping them accessible for when you need them. The pattern includes instructions for both short and full thumbs. The mitts are knitted in the round starting with the top flap, which is then joined in as the main mitt is knitted. A waste yarn thumb gusset is used, and the mitts themselves are completely seam free as they start with Judy’s magic cast on, which means you don’t have to go back at the end to join the top of the flap. The flap can be buttoned down using either a short crocheted chain or i-cord loop buttonhole; instructions are provided for both options.
The mitts are knitted in a DK-weight yarn at slightly tighter tension than usual to make the mitts hard wearing.
