Ferryboat Mitts Pattern

Ferryboat Mitts Pattern

“Handsome on men and women alike.”

Perfect for a foggy morning commute across Puget Sound. Or keyboarding with the thermostat down. Or texting. Or knitting out of doors. We love these handsome ribbed mitts on men and women alike. One fellow told us that our thumb gusset reminded him of a sweep of chrome on a car, so we knew we'd hit a nice masculine note!

We love fingerless mitts—or gloves. They're perfect for our damp, mostly mild winters. When you warm your pulse points, you warm your whole body, and we love to have our fingers free. No idle hands! In a place with a colder winter (hello Chicago), wear them over your leather gloves for a little extra warmth and style. Simple to knit and wear—what's not to like?
