Issue 531 • Easy Fingerless Mitts
Happy New Year!
As we settle into winter, here's a simple pattern for fingerless mitts in super soft Inca Alpaca. Worked flat and seamed, and entirely in stockinette stitch, there is no left or right mitt – each mitt will fit either hand. Wear these mitts all day long, or layer under your mittens and gloves when outdoors, to stay extra warm and cozy.

Inca Alpaca is soft, sturdy and very warm. Alpaca is a smoother fiber than wool, giving it a luster that many wools lack. It’s also a dry fiber; there’s no lanolin to worry about if you’re one of the folks who reacts to lanolin in wool. The wide color range of Inca Alpaca makes it great not only for colorwork, but also for finding that one perfect color for solid color garments and accessories.
