A Special Free Crochet Pattern: Fiona Mitts
These fingerless mitts are the perfect bit of luxury. A stretchy stitch pattern means the mitt conforms comfortably to your hand for a perfect fit. Crochet short rows provide delicate wrist shaping.

5.25 inches long, 5-inch circumference at wrist opening, 6.5-inch circumference at top. Stretches to comfortably accommodate a 8.5-inch hand circumference (hand circumference is measured around hand excluding thumb).
95 yards sport weight yarn
H/8/5.0mm crochet hook or size needed to obtain gauge
Stitch marker (optional)
In order to make the project with 95 yards of yarn, it is critical to meet gauge!
Be careful not to work slip stitches too tightly as you will be working into slip stitches in the next row.
The mitt is worked sideways, as a rectangle, and seamed closed afterward.
This free crochet pattern is provided for personal and charitable use only. For other uses, contact me.
Rows 1–4 = 5.25 inches wide and 1 inch long.
