Fingerless mittens are a great gift for Vancouverites - that little bit of added warmth around your wrists and palms is enough to keep your hands from freezing on our damp winter days. I have also been known to wear them indoors, especially while typing away in poorly heated offices and libraries!
The Camp Out Mitts by tante ehm are a great fingerless mitten pattern. It was originally designed for use with Noro yarns - the long colour repeats highlight the garter section around the hand, and then gradually change colour as you work down the wrist. The latest version of this pattern is written for three sizes of yarn (sport, worsted, and aran), so you have lots of options for yarn choices - we made our store sample with Noro Kurepatora (colour 1006), but you could also use Noro Silk Garden Sock. In either case, one ball is more than enough for one pair - and they knit up so quickly, that you can make a pair for each of your friends!
