Knitting machines galore since one is never enough, photo tutorials, and knits gone wild

Fetching Fingerless Gloves

Knitty Fetching fingerless gloves knit with reynolds eternity wool microfiber yarn and mohair purple lavendar violet yarn

Yes, I realize I’m the last knitter in Knitville to jump on the Fetching bandwagon. They are still a perfect portable project.

Both pairs were made with size 6 (4 mm) needles with the cable cast on recommended in the pattern. I tried a long tail cast on and found it was too rigid. The cable cast on allows the fabric to move and mimic the look of the picot cast off. I lined up the picot bind off with the final purl columns. I added rows in the finger zone for my large hands.

The dark pair is Reynolds Eternity, a machine washable wool blend of 51% wool and 49% microfiber. It is so soft. Even with size 6 needles, the mitts are firm and elastic without being cardboard stiff.

The light pair is an unidentifiable wool mohair blend from my stash. It is wonderful finished. Horrible if you make a mistake and have to rip back.

Hey Kathryn,
thanks for the nice comment on my blog. We are actually starting cables tomorrow so these gloves are a nice inspiration. They are really pretty & love how the cable is elongated in the center.
