Meaning “water” in Scots, Uisge is a simple but fun fingerless mitts pattern. They are the final pair in my elemental mitts series with a beautiful cascade of slipped stitch cables travelling from cuff to cuff up the outside of each hand. This fingerless mitts pattern is a really quick and fun make – perfect for yourself or a gift for someone special!
The pattern is fully written instructions, with charts for the cable and also includes a photo tutorial for a super stretchy cast-on called the Estonian Cast-On for the bottom of the glove and the backward loop cast-on. The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted. There’s a screenshot of the pattern, and a list of the stitches used at the bottom of the photos. These additional techniques are used: picking up stitches.
32 stitches and 44 rows in 10 cm (4”) in stocking stitch in the round.
