Dunbar’s Point Mittens

Dunbar’s Point Mittens

Dunbar’s Point Mittens are fairly easy, seamless, and useful fingerless mittens that can be completed in a single evening, perfect for last-minute gifting. The pattern offers photo tutorials of a provisional lace cast-on and the knitted attachment of the edging. Dunbar’s Point provides an opportunity to learn and practice new techniques in a small, unintimidating setting.

    Love these mittens! Even if it weren’t in one of my favorite colors: raspberry, I really like the bumpy wrist part (whatever that’s called.) A beautiful pattern. Thanks for sharing.
