I am pleased to announce that the Ancestral Fingerless Mittens pattern has now been released and is available from the Ravelry shop.

These snug-fitting fingerless mittens have been my go-to comfort pattern for many, many years now. When I don’t know what to make, I make this.

It has comforted me through family losses, anxiety and stress, knitting anhedonia, as well as last minute panic gifts.

This pattern gives me great comfort – it’s like a #hugforthehands – but I’ve never been ready to share it with anyone. But now that I am no longer the bottom branch on my family tree, deep down I know it’s time to share it. Even if I am a little anxious about sharing it still!

I hope it brings you some comfort like it has done for me.

Each mitten is worked flat in one piece. The cast on and cast off edges are then seamed together to run down the back of the hand and wrist. These mittens work up super quick – approximately 4 hours total – and are fabulous for gift giving and stash busting. The garter stitch fabric creates a snug fit, leaving fingers free for use, and it is brilliant for showing off any smooth yarn – whether it be a solid colour, a gentle tonal, or the wildest coloured yarn you can find!
