These fingerless mitts were designed to allow me to knit during my kids’ hockey practice without freezing my hands off in the cold arenas. Inspired by the marks on the ice created during ice dancing or even hockey. The mitts are knit from the top to the cuff, and the thumb is knit afterwards in the opposite direction. There are no fingers at all to allow the knitter to hold the yarn between the fingers for tension control.
