Make yourself a nifty pair of flip mitts. They're hip, trendy and handier than a pocket on a shirt! Not only can you make these super awesome mitts for just about anyone from teen to adult, but you can forgo the finger portion and make some cool fingerless gloves. They're knitted on double point needles and though this sounds intimidating, it's very simple.
Slip Stitch Mittens
Slipped stitches add texture and blend beautifully with the ribbed hems. Slipped stiches as the hem edges help create snug cuffs that don’t flare. The pattern can be feminine or masculine depending on the colors you choose, and works equally well in solid or variegated yarns.
