Checkers Mitts

Skill Level: Intermediate

These cute fingerless mittens are perfect to try out a new technique. This pattern is fast because of its small size. The intricate pattern may look difficult, but it’s actually quite easy.

The pattern comes in three sizes to fit most women’s hands. (All measured around the palm right below where fingers meet. Small Mitts: 7.5” around x 6.5 tall Medium Mitts: 8” around x 7” tall Large Mitts: 8.5” around x 7.5 tall

The pattern uses Fair Isle crochet which creates a double thick fabric for extra warmth.

Fair Isle is a technique where two colors are used in any particular row to create pictures or designs in your project. Don’t know how to do Fair Isle? Don’t worry, there is an extensive photo tutorial section that will not only teach you how to create Fair Isle but also covers all of this:

Color Changing throughout the mits including at the round join. Catching the yarn to create short floats. How to keep your yarn untangled. How to keep your seam straight and invisible on your mitts. The mitts include full written instructions as well as a color chart for the Fair Isle portion.

Recommended Yarn approx. 200 yards of lightweight yarn

Recommended Hooks 2.5mm US-C 3.25mm US-D 3.5mm US-E
